The foothills of Kilimanjaro

Well here I am at last. Yesterday I flew out to Nairobi, and this morning I transferred to Kilimanjaro international airport. I’m finally going to climb the mountain.

I’m using the Wi-Fi in the lodge in which I’m currently staying in order to post this message. Needless to say there will not be an internet connection on the mountain itself.

The mountain itself is enormous, and I was tested to some spectacular views of it as I flew in, the top rising majestically through the cloud layer to dominate the view through the aircraft window. I cannot wait to climb it.

There will be no further updates until I have retrieved from the mountain, but the donation website is still available if you wish to donate to the charity fundraiser. http://www.justgiving.com/2Karl

Look carefully and you'll see the top of the mountain peeking through the clouds

The greatest challenge
I ever faced. Or at least
The second greatest.
