Mount Kilimanjaro

Arthur continued to suffer from a sinus infection for the following week. We finally convinced him to take antibiotics and he recovered in a matter of days. Kendal suffered from aching, swollen knees resulting from descending 14,000' in the last two days of the climb and had bad blisters on her feet. We both had numb toes resulting from the pounding they took on the descent; the numbness went away over the next couple of weeks. My finger tips felt a little numb for a week.

When we arrived at the coast of the Indian Ocean on the Wild Coast of South Africa we unpacked our “Kilimanjaro Air” and found the bottles to be a good demonstration of what one has to cope with at the summit.
