|Hi all - so we went to a small cozy town which was the outset for Maciejs great climb - the town was called Nanyuki. I just spend those 5 days chilling, doing not much, remembering that this is a holiday and I am allowed to just sit on a bench all day and stare at people. Best highlight were the time i bought a corn and when the crazy stoned whites in the town decided to be best palls with me.
I'll let Maciej describe mt Kenya....
At the time that I am writing this, I finsished the MT Kenya trek two weeks ago. The blisters on my feet still have not healed. I think it has much to do with the humidity in this climate. Same things happened when I went to Thailand.
Mt Kenya was a great experience. Was not able to reach the peak of 4985. Instead made it to about 4750. Was very sick and didn't want to risk puting myself in a worse situation. Didn't actually start feeling better until I got really low in altitude (2700)so it seems like I had the flu and altitude sickness. Well, in any event, I was really pissed that I didn't do it but should have given myself an extra day to aclimatize (or however you spell that word). Hope everyone is enjoying the picks.
