... region and we were told to move through quickly! The rest of the descend was horrible as well, it's not nice on your knees (I'll tell you that for free)! But we slowly eased our way down and to be fair we did pass a few people on our way. After trekking in all weathers and conditions for 7 hours we were almost at the end. With less than 2 miles to go we were strolling through the bush when I tripped and fell flat on my face. I was in so much pain and extremely embarrassed ...
