Climb day 2

The first night I slept like a baby and woke up early and saw the sunrise. Looking down and seeing across the Maasai plains was incredible. Then, if you turned around the view of Kibo and Mawenzi looked much closer than they really were. It was all quite spectacular!

After breakfast we made our way to the next camp. This was quite a tough walk as it was very steep and rocky. Throughout the walk I was very happy as I am really enjoying walking “Pole Pole” but I am finding it hard as I am constantly feeling nauseous. As much as it sucks, I am walking with a smile and mentally I am already at Uhuru peak! I am also trying to be off my phone as much as possible, although I want to take lots of pictures. I want to be in the moment and make lifelong connections.
