Photographer's Note

When you are up to 3000 meters over the sea level, one of your biggest fears is to suffer altitude sickness that could, eventually, force you to climb down as soon as possible. Yes, you dont want anything going wrong because what you are experiencing is so beautiful that you just want to walk a step further and keep discovering till you reach the summit.
In this case the summit was Uhuru peak, the highest in Africa with 5895 meters, up at the Kilimanjaro volcano. Happily, the four of us succesfully did it. This photo was taken at the Shira plateau, one of the campaments on the way up, in a beautiful sunset.
The experienced mountain people says that you dont finish your task when you reach the peak, you finish it when you climb it all the way down. I would say it last longer, because the excitement reminds in your memory as a sweet kandy much, much longer.

Take care folks, I´m back to TEland.
