Mount Kilimanjaro

After lunch we packed our duffel bags and day packs in preparation for the next day. We were each 2-3 kg under the allotted 15 kg load the porters will carry for us. Kendal and I put empty disposable water bottles into our duffels for a later demonstration of what the air is like at the summit. Kilimanjaro Park does not allow disposables on the mountain in an attempt to keep the mountain clean. But in this case we were resolved to smuggle it in and “pack it out.”
