KILI!


So, here's a pic from the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro!
I managed to catch a cold on the flight over, so spent a feverish night in Mombasa before heading into Tanzania to Moshi, at the start of the trail. I couldn't postpone the start so had to set off ill, I wouldn't recommend climbing a mountain with a cold to anyone, it really doesn't help with fatigue and altitude sickness! But the trail was beautiful, the landscape ever-changing, and as all over africa the locals are a joy to be with. Whilst certainly no walk in the park, this did feel like a welcome change down in gear, in comparison to the Marathon de Sables and Rowing the Atlantic. So now I have completed this trilogy of extreme challenges, all in 1 year! :)
