My sister-in-law is busy climbing Kilimanjaro as we speak. Today is her summit attempt day and I really hope she makes it. It will be her second attempt and she has put in a lot of preparation, walking and hiking a lot in the lead up. Unfortunately nothing you do can prepare you for the altitude.
To say that I am just a little bit jealous is an understatement. I climbed it in September 2005 and it was one of the best things I have ever done and would love to do it again.
I am wishing her all the best and I really hope that she gets to the top. GOOD LUCK!!!
There is a picture on my photo’s page at the summit when I climbed it with my mom and my sister in celebration of my mom’s 60th birthday!
