The team is all here and our adventure starts tomorrow!

Today we rested from the long flights and prepared our gear for the climb. We took a short ride into Arusha, did a little shopping and visited the school that Clement’s (our driver) children attend. Some of the team members brought gifts and candy that we handed out to the kids. Plenty of smiles there!

Everyone is doing well, a little nervous as usual! But ready to stretch the legs tomorrow.
