Kilimanjaro looms...

...ominously above. I am scared. I cant sleep. Tomorrow we start the climb. Its the easiest ascent; the "coca cola" route, but we just had a briefing and the possibility, however unlikely, of cerebral oedema is not something I relish.

All of yesterday it was covered in an angry cloud, but at06:00 this morning I was greeted by this inspiring sight.
After a hearty breakfast, we set off to explore a little and met a local, Emanuel, who took us on a short (2 hr) hike

This, to me, is authentic Africa

I could not resist swimming out to the shower under the falls...

Is this not the scariest sight you have seen? Look closely...
