Next Day
(Hiking time: 6 hours) From the last camp to Kilimanjaro's base, the rain poured over us again. No one told us we needed a canoe for the hike down. This is one of those experiences to smile about afterwards, at home, in bed, beneath warm covers.
A river runs through it. No need for morning showers when you a stream runs into your sleeping bag.
Pouring rain, ankle deep mud, at least it's a cushiony walk down.
