... from Kilimanjaro to Arusha was scary as people just do what they like on the roads and don't worry about following road rules. But I made it safe and sound! The house I am at is old and run down but it's nice. It's locked up just out of the main centre so I feel safe here. There are two boys and 20 girls! There are other houses too apparently as well as home stays where 4 people live with a mumma. The food is very basic but unfortunately it's still stuff I don't eat! I am ...

Later we decided to take a bath ourselves in the river (with swim suits on) - this time the Maisai watched us, as I expect they have ...
... again at another time until he realized it was just a hare.
The climb up was tough, especially after a rock fall where I was hit in the head with a flying rock from above which caused bleeding above my right eye and a bit of an egg on the side of my head. A suggestion was that I turn back with Thomas [guide] but there’s no way after going through all that I wasn’t going to get to the peak. Breakfast was ...
