Congratulations to Team Arush -to the top- a on their summit of Kilimanjaro! The tired team is safely back down to Millennium Camp

Hello everyone its Arush -to the top- a! (cheers in background). We are at Millennium Camp, at 12,200 feet, it’s the 13th of July, somewhere about 7:30 in the evening. We are all very tired. We had a great day today, going up to the summit of Kilimanjaro, everyone but one person was able to make it, fantastic weather conditions, and we are all very happy. Big, big congratulations to Townes Pressler and his wife Penny Patterson. (more cheers). We are of course, after such a long day, very tired. We just had a summit cake following dinner, and we are going to hit the hay and get some rest, because we’ve got to get up at 5am tomorrow, for our last day down to the Mweka Gate at 6,000 feet and back to Arusha for some celebration. We’ll give you a shout out from Arusha. Thanks for following along.
