Hello everyone, this is Ben calling from the top of Kilimanjaro! We are on the summit right now (19,340 feet), it’s just right before 7am here Tanzania time. And we’ve got 100% success, everybody made it up here. Team Twende Kumi all 10 of them made it up here, did an awesome job and made great time getting up here. Really nice weather up here, we’re looking down on a sea of clouds below; we can see Kilimanjaro’s shadow in the distance as well. It’s just a beautiful morning.
We’re getting ready to start heading down now but everybody’s doing well and ready to get back down to thicker air down in the lowlands here. So we’re going to head down to Kosovo Camp or High Camp. And we’re going to rest a little bit, we’re going to pack up, eat lunch and then continue down the mountain a little bit further. We’ll see how far we get, but there’s two camp options, and one is a little bit higher. We’ll see how everybody’s doing, it’s been a long day so far and it’s going to be even longer so we may stop at the higher camp and get a little more rest tonight.
But everybody’s doing good, says “hello” back home and we’ll talk to you soon when we get down to our next camp. Bye.
