Hello, this is Don Carpenter calling in from Kilimanjaro: Barranco Camp with Perry, Melissa, and Jack and it is the 30th of August. It is about 6 pm and we had a nice layover day today, meaning we did not break down camp and move. So we had a little later breakfast, and then we hiked back up to Lava Tower and scrambled up a lovely, basalt tower that put us up over 4600 meters so it was a nice exercise and getting up to higher altitudes for acclimatization. And everybody did great and everybody had a lot of fun too.
So yeah we had a nice day and then a relaxing afternoon around camp with a hot lunch. Just had some tea and we’re going to be heading into dinner here shortly, so everyone’s just relaxing in their tents. And the sun’s about to set, so looking down on the clouds and another nice day on Kilimanjaro.
We are going to wake up tomorrow, head up the Barranco Wall and head towards Karanga Camp, so we’ll give you a call from Karanga. Everyone’s doing well, b’bye.
