made it to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro! It was a fun and epic
nine-day adventure -- certainly not a piece of cake to reach the
summit, but with no significant problems along the way. Thanks to
crafting a somewhat nonstandard itinerary, we were able to stand alone
(with our guides) on the 19,340' Roof of Africa, and spend a
high-altitude overnight among the glaciers in the otherworldly 18,800'
crater. We'll post a longer travelog with more photos in a few days.
For now, it's shower time.
Next: Five-day jeep safari to Lake Manyara, the Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti Plain
