    Maybe it was because it was low season, but be did get a room with detached bathroom for $30USD/night. At times there was no electricity, and at other times there was no water, but the lunch buffet is great (1500Rwsh)- just remember you can only pile up your plate once, so stack it high.

    ... Many of the group had some minor difficulties with the breathing due to the lack of air and we were no exception. Regular intakes of water and growing excitement however, kept any discomfort at bay.

    At the point that the farmland became the National Park, we faced the toughest hurdle – climbing a rather high stone wall. Thank goodness for porters and guides who were able to help us all. As the oldest trekker in the group (Shirley is ...

    ... was rather brief and hard to pay attention to because of the impressive swarm of excited and joyous children enthralled by our every move. As we were leaving they surrounded our van, filling up each door and window until we could barely see out. Angie, being absent as she was talking with our host, was oblivious to our exponentially pressing circumstances.

    ... at the gate at Chez Lando, but our driver woke him with a little honk of the horn. He opened the gate, and we drove into the courtyard. It is covered in red pavers and surrounded by a high wall. This place is well established. I was barely awake at check-in, but I managed to respond to a couple of questions and allow the receptionist to scan my passport into their system. They knew Mr. M already since he is a regular. So, he had his key well before I had mine. I was just barely ...

    ... benefit from our program. Finally, the campus was beautiful; it was gated and surrounded by a garden (which would later become an obstacle) that went around the outskirts of the school. As we took a tour of the campus, I didn't spot one piece of garbage on the ground. There was a volleyball court with dip bars, along side of the only thing that looked out of place, the mud pitch, where our court would be built.
