Hey everyone, it’s Team 5 here on Kili. It’s the 23rd of January. We’re all here at Shira Camp/Camp 2 (12,500 feet).
And lo and behold, we have a Team name. After much discussion, we are now “Strato Five”. Kili is a stratovolcano, and we are Team Five, so we are Strato Five. We’ve got one geologist in the group, several other natural science folks, and we’re having a great time. Everybody’s doing good.
We’re taking it pole pole, nice and slow. And today we had a good day, decent weather, no rain, some clouds in the afternoon, kind of per the norm, in camp by 2:30 and lots of downtime. Tomorrow’s our long day to Barranco Camp, long beautiful day via 15,000 feet. We’re hoping for some more good conditions tomorrow.
Everyone’s doing great, sends their best back home. That’s all for now, Usiku mwema (“good night” in Swahili).
