We camped out at Panorama camp site where we didn't stay in tents, but in igloos. Oh the irony! They were also boiling hot and infested with ants so not much sleep was had during our three day excursion. Then all of Sweden came to our camp and took hostage of the bathroom and dining area. So many blonde people in my midst! The girls were also very into their velour sweatsuits. I didn't realize the 90's called! Oh snap! I'm soooooo funny...*cough* *cough*. It ...

On the way to the Public camp we passed a waterhole with: Baboons, monkeys, Warthogs, Zebra, Impala, Kudu, Giraffe, Wildebeest and Elephants. Who was looking at whom?

They have such big hearts that pump the blood to head that when they put their heads down, they can get very dizzy & fall making them vulnerable to ...
... a long goodbye and thank you to the porters (all 22 of them!), cooks, and guides, we are headed back to our hotel in Arusha. It feels good to be back on flatland and with showers in our near futures! After much discussion, we all agreed that climbing Kilimanjaro was incredible, unparalleled, and fun, but also much more physically taxing than we could have anticipated. Thankfully we deemed tomorrow a "rest day" before heading the Serengeti to see some critters Monday ...
