July 20th Kili Expedition Enjoyed Lunch At Mweka Gate Before Heading To Arusha For Some Rest For Safari Tomorrow

Hi, it’s Don Carpenter, with the July 20th Kili expedition, calling on July 29th.  It appears I got cut off on the last call.  So I just wanted to make sure my message got out, I’ll give an abbreviated version.   We are all safe and sound back in Arusha.

Had a great hike out today and a great lunch celebration at Mweka Gate and everybody’s here at the hotel in Arusha, looking forward to showers and some rest and dinner this evening and then everyone’s off for safari starting tomorrow.  Take care and thanks for listening.
