The Kilimanjaro team is back at the Keys Hotel. Hot showers, food and clothes drying were the order of the day. Soon, they will be flying out to the Serengeti and beginning the first of 3 days on safari. Of course, the only way to do a Kilimanjaro trip is to do the climb first, then safari. Can you imagine the thrill and sense of accomplishment in enjoying a gin and tonic which watching the sunset across the plains of the Serengeti? And, after just having climbed Kilimanjaro in not the easiest of conditions? Priceless.
Ang Jangbu sent us this photo of the team approaching the rim of the Crater at Stella Point. A little new snow, a tight, focused team and knowing that the summit is now in sight. Good stuff. A really Happy New Year to these guys!
