Dear Friends,

I have arrived at my base in Moshi. It is the Keys Hotel. Very fancy colonial tropical style with swimming pool. Luxury for me. I will stay here tonight and also the night of the 21st when I return from Kilimanjaro. I hope, God willing, I can return with the prize of the first of the Seven Summits and a personal altitude record. If I reach the summit I will claim 1,000 mts higher than I have ever been before. I will take with me the ASAP T-shirt for the summit photo, God willing.

Later I must meet with two South African fellow climbers who will, along with the guide and porters, comprise the team.

I got some new sandals to use on the pre-snow approach trek.

Best Wishes
