The sunrise this morning was spectacular. The region has seen little rain in the past week leaving most areas dusty and dry. The iconic orange sun of Africa was brilliant as its early morning glow penetrated through the hazy air. Slight wisps of clouds gave character to the sky, making the colors more contrasting and striking.
And…11 women stood on the top of Kilimanjaro!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A very windy call was made from Godson, one of the head guides. Though it was difficult to hear him, it was clear that all 11 had made it to the summit, all 11 were on their way back down safely. There was little energy in his voice…but it was clear he was smiling.
Congratulations to the 2010 team!!!
A message was just received from them exclaiming:
We ROCK! All 11 of us summited Kili this morning at 715am. Delighted, excited and exhausted!
