Jambo from Tanzania!
Jambo everyone! I can’t believe two weeks have passed. I’m having an awesome time in East Africa, specifically Tanzania. The Mount Kilimanjaro hike was really difficult (especially summit night) but the experience on the mountain was fantastic, regardless of the altitude sickness on day 3 and frostbite incident on summit night. I’ll go into more details about my adventure on the mountain when I get more time to write. I met awesome people, lots of people traveling alone, primarily guys. Us loners tend to stick together
After my 7 day Machame route hike, I went on a 5-day safari. The Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater are spectacular and definitely a MUST see! I was lucky enough to see a lion chase a baby zebra. The animals we saw are incredible: zebras, giraffes, elephants, lions, impalas, gazelles, etc. It was like being in a movie!
Anyhow, my time in Moshi is coming to an end. I’m heading back to the airport tomorrow and flying to Zanzibar. I’m really looking forward to laying on a beach and visiting Stone Town. I made a bunch of friends who will also be staying somewhere on the island so I’m hoping to meet up with them at least for one day.
I have so much to say but little time to write! My friends are waiting for me to go have dinner in town. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! Bring on 2011!
