Kilimanjaro Picture of the week 14


This picture of our two outstanding Tusker guides; Stephen and Yusto was taken during our acclimatization climb above Moir camp. Behind them you can see the entire Shira Plateau which we had crossed as we ascended the mountain.

These two guys were dedicated to our success in every way. Stephen was very patient with us, i.e. the Cheeseheads from flatland, and an excellent teacher. Yusto helped me the day the side effects from the Malaria preventive I had taken, Lariam, had me convinced they were going to disqualify me from continuing up the mountain…I’d never been that far off base in my entire life.

We were lucky and honored to have them looking after us.
