Good evening everybody, it is Poa Ndizi here on Kilimanjaro. It’s the 24th of June, day 3 for us. We’re here at Barranco Camp (at 12,900 feet). It must be the better part of 8pm in the evening, and the Pucker-Schroeder group is very tired.
We had a great day today, lots of sunshine, warm temps. A number of us were able to scramble up the Lava Tower (yelling in background), which gave us some great views of the Western Breach and the Breach Wall on the mountain. And we’re about ready to go to bed, get ourselves a good night’s rest.
Paul, we’re having a great time here, this is Nina (laughter in background). It was a very long day. The meals are scrumptious! Alpine Ascents does an amazing job with food; we snack and snack all day, every hour at least, sit-down lunch which is delicious. We had a wonderful dinner of barbecued lamb, mashed potatoes, kale/hot kale. It was delicious! Homemade pie (laughs with laughter in background). Everybody’s having a great time; some feeling a little better than others, but everybody very, very well. Looking forward to our short day tomorrow, so we can rest up for our big night the next night, summit night. We’re all pretty psyched for that, so stay tuned.
Stay tuned for the Cool Bananas!
