We arrived back in Moshi and the Kilemakyaro Lodge last night, exhausted, dirty, but fulfilled and proud of our group accomplishments. Not only did all 13 of the team summit the highest mountain in Africa (and one of the seven summits), but the team collectively has raised to date $90k. Only $10k more to reach $100K so, if you can help us get there (or have friends who can) please do! All funds raised go to support Outward Bound Canada's charitable programs for women survivors of violence and/or abuse, Canadian military veterans, aboriginal youth and youth At risk.

After hot showers, an evening celebratory dinner and long sleeps at only 3000ft elevation we all are feeling better today.   This morning we were in Moshi being tourists doing some shopping, eating and visiting with the families of some of our guides. This is a picture of our team lunching at the Union Cafe - a local hangout with great coffee!  

And then later this morning we arrived in Amsterdam. We have been enjoying being at sea level and eating dutch pancakes! Arriving home soon....

Over and Out!
