Kilimanjaro: Jeff Martin and Team arrive in Tanzania

Jambo from Tanzania,

Our African adventure has started!

The majority of the team arrived on the KLM flight from Amsterdam tonight. Definitely a tired group of travelers, but that is to be expected after the almost 24 hours needed to get here. Any arrivals hall is a bit chaotic, and Kilimanjaro International Airport is no exception. Safari teams and climbers alike look for their guides and drivers throughout the crowded maze of people. We found our team pretty quickly and got immediately out of the action and headed to our bus. We had an opened bottle of champagne waiting for us, and after a quick toast to Kilimanjaro, we were on our way to the hotel. One more performance of the “duffel shuffle”, and we moved into our rooms where we will be spending the next two nights.

We are minutes away from sitting down to a three course dinner on the outside patio at the Dik Dik Hotel. I think roasted lamb is on the menu tonight…. Tough transition from airplane food, but someone’s got do it.

La la salama,
