below are pages from an article i had published in Twende, an East African travel mag. i wasn't too happy with the article, which i rushed through after getting home in december, but the pictures turned out really well. our guide, who had hiked the mountain a couple dozen times over the past several years, said that it was the clearest weather he had ever seen on the peak. we could just glimpse the tanzanian twins, Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru, above the clouds in the distance. spectacular.
