Arusha for a couple of days prior to the climb.
I thank Ed, Fred, Zak, Godlisten, Dennis, Morris, and the entire team for being such cheerful companions. This was a hard and rewarding trip. Everything went well - none of us got sick or injured, and we all achieved the summit. All the Tanzanians we met were unfailingly friendly and courteous. I do not know if I have the stamina for another big peak, but Mount Fuji is tempting. Next year...
If you want to take your own trip to Kilimanjaro, I strongly recommend Embark Adventures of Portland, Oregon.
