What the hell was I thinking?

Arusha Travel Blog

So we made it to Arusha today after an overnight flight and about eight hours in Kenya, which was beautiful.  I will have to go back and actually spend some time there.  The place we are staying in Arusha is picture perfect, at the foot of Mt. Meru, which we thought was Mt. Kili at first.  It is just glaring down at us and intimidating me.  However, Mt. Kili is even higher so I wonder what were we thinking?  We set off bright and early tomorrow once we meet up with the gear we hope has arrived.  I will write all about it upon my return, which should be Sunday or Monday.  Until then, wish me luck!

I have been climbing all week, and sleeping in a tent, but it was about 7 hours from base camp to the summit uphill, in straight-line winds while battling nausea from altitude sickness. I will write details in my blog when I get better internet. Thanks for the advice on the socks! And I know Jen is cool!! She is related after all :) Wish she were here for sure! I'll send another postcard when I can and answer more questions...oh, but 16 shots pre-trip and now I'm on anti-malarials until I get home. Good stuff. No monkeys yet...
