The guide seemed so lethargic and unenthusiastic on the way back down that I decided to change my plans and my route. I was to head back to Chambe Hut that afternoon and back out the way we came the day after. This cut one day off the hike. Besides I knew the 4 Belgium's, Gail, Rolland, Eva and Marie were there so it seemed like it would be a lot nicer to spend the evening with them that my bored guide.
Back in Chambe I took a refreshing dip in a cold stream before taking advantage of the beer on hand. Mt. Mulange was a hot and humid place at this time of year.
The 5 of us pooled all our remaining food and had a feast. Chicken and Mushroom soup for starters. Pasta, white sauce, fresh tomatoes, sardines and tuna for mains and cappuccino biscuits and Milo for desert.
We all sat on the porch that night and watched the clouds clear, the moon rise while checking out all the stars.
