... the plains where they create areas of lush marshlands feeding the animals inhabiting the park. Sad enough again global warming is interfering with the processes nature uses to make life possible. The snow cap is slowly melting and has been reduced quite a bit in recent years.

... where we'd start to learn about the Chagga culture. The Chagga people are from one of the largest tribes in Tanzania traditionally living around Mount Kilimajaro. Virgin sacrifices, caves to hide in, slavery.... We also learnt about the story of the statue of a girl named Makinuka at the top of the waterfall. In Chagga culture, pregnancy before marriage was punishable by death. Either the girl would be stoned to death, or the man responsible would lay on top of the girl and ...

As we climbed nearly 3,500 feet, the occasional winds turned into shrill blasts of cold air. Our breathing was controlled, but Adam and I definitely felt the light-headed dizziness of which everyone warned us as we neared the rim of the crater. Solomon and William raised the bar high above our 6-foot-plus heads, which resulted ...

... a week's worth of food and gear for just the two of us.

Why such a large posse for a couple? It's not as though I brought my entire case of my makeup and hair Mastercraft tools along for the climb. Unlike the porters' limitless loads in Nepal, a single porter's maximum load on Kili is restricted to 44 pounds (20 kilos).
