Day 3 -- Kilimanjaro Climb
Communication made possible by www.mvsusa.com
Day started off on a wonderful note and we all packed up the van and headed to the Mountain's gate. I have been fighting a cold and the higher we went the more my ears clogged. Higher and higher my ears got more clogged. Now I can't even hear very well. The Machame gate was wonderful and after signing in we took off on the trail and headed up onto the mountain. The rain forest was absolutely beautiful and the trek was fantastic. Very difficult day and very steep. It was amazing none the less. About six hours later we rolled into camp and ate some snacks. All the porters had the tents set up and ready for us. Dinner was meat... Not sure what kind, but I swear my piece had a bullet hole in it. Now its off to bed and we wake up at 6:30am and go from the Macheme camp to the Shira plateau. Five hour hike and we get to rest. Got the text messages- awesome. Thank so much and keep them coming.
