Kilimanjaro Preview

As some of you know (those who are friends with me on Facebook, anyway), I went to Tanzania over Christmas break. And climbed Kilimanjaro. Climbing was an utterly fantastic, amazing, exhausting experience.

I have 500+ pictures to sort through and a bunch of chores before the school term starts on Monday, so a thorough reckoning will not be forthcoming for a while. To tide you over until such time as I can give you a more complete account, I have created this panorama for you, taken at Uhuru Peak, the highest point in Africa.

It's huge, but worth it.


  1. Awesome and amazing and awe-inspiring and all those things you say about mountains and nature unleashed. I demand more pictures!

  2. Thanks! For a sense of scale, by the way, the clouds on the right half of the picture are several miles below us...

  3. Wow... Kick ass picture, man! You didn't mention to us that you were going over there and doing that and I was starting to wonder why I hadn't heard from you in a while. Glad you had an awesome trip! Give us a call sometime soon.

  4. My awe is inspired, and ass kicked, by that picture. Yes, more pictures! If you have pictures of Freddy Mercury's Zanzibarian birthplace, all the better.
