Kilimanjaro, Day 1

Things I discovered today:

  1. Tanzania is really far from Portland. 
  2. The Sahara desert looks amazing from an airplane
  3. It is hot and sweaty, even at night, in northern Tanzania
  4. Kikiwete, incumbent president, won the elections on Sunday, and there seems to be little controversy.  All of the road projects started before the elections, however, have come to a grinding halt.  Including the road to Tudeley Estates, where piles of dirt force you to drive off into the bush to pass. 
  5. I am currently on the slopes of Kilimanjaro, however I haven’t caught a glimpse yet.

I haven’t slept in about 30 hours, so this will have to do!
