As we flew over Tanzania, Dawna excitedly told me look out the window and there in the distance we saw Mount Kilimanjaro poking through the clouds. I …
... It felt so good afterwards knowing we did it!!! All sweaty and dirty; also it was a great work out under the ground! Hahha! & it was so dark down there! My pics didn't succeed.

... We do. Dock at 1655hrs. 25mins to go. Ethiopian stewardess opens the door and tells ground crew that I urgently need to catch a 1720hrs flight. Small woman with radio leaps into action. Except no one is replying to her call backs. She's under 5 feet tall. We walk very slowly. Almost scoop her up and run with her. But it's too hot for all that.
Come on. Come on. Chop chop. Can't you walk any faster?! Finally. Someone responds to her distress call about ...
