Machame Gate

Jambo! We are at the Machame Gate - 6000ft, the start of our climb. We had a bit of a late start today but should be heading off soon. Had a delicious lunch of "chrisburgers" which is a traditional first day of kili lunch consisting of an interesting assortment of food - fries, muffin, bananas, sandwich and an egg. The group is all doing well and feeling fit and rested. Everyone in good spirits and excited to get going (and perhaps a bit apprehensive). We should be hiking for 6hrs today and will sleep tonight at 10000ft. Please send comments on the Blog - we loving hearing from you.
