I have climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro several times since 2008. In this blog I share my experience of climbing the world's highest free standing mountain, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I also share stories of people I have met during my climbs.

Vitali Maembe joins the CDEA Kilimanjaro Climb 2014 (post 1 of 10)
On my latest Mt. Kilimanjaro climb I trekked on the Machame route for the first time. I was accompanied by musician/activist Vitali Maembe.
Here's my blog log of the climb.
Wednesday 3 September 2014
I rushed through some last-minute errands before taking a bodaboda (motorcycle) taxi to Nyamisisi where I became worried I might not catch a bus in time to arrive in Mwanza in time for my Dar flight.
But I was relieved when 25 minutes later a new BATCO Coach bus pulled in and I was given the very first seat of the bus, a seat I never choose. To my relief, though, the driver drove at my preferred speed. Slow for most passengers; perfect for me.
I caught the plane to Dar on time and was looking forward to attending a press conference tomorrow organised by Culture and Development East Africa (CDEA) to publicize our fundraising climb with Vitali Maembe.
