... 21 unfamiliar faces all with broad glowing smiles- not other climbers, they were our dedicated team of Porters and Guides. As far as they were concerned they were the lucky ones. The lucky ones who scored a job heading into the low season where they might be without work for months. I wasn't sure they were so lucky having to haul 15kg+ each over the 8 days, but they made it seem so easy singing and laughing to each other as they glided by us each day.

So we left at 5am, up at 4.30 to pack up tents. We are heading for Mt Kilimanjaro but we had to stop on the way to make breakfast and pack lunch.
