We really were there (even if we didn't see it)!

Does this count as a picture of Kiliminjaro?

As we got closer and closer to Mt. Kiliminjaro, we still had difficulties viewing it because of the cloud cover. Unfortunately, during our entire two days there we were unable to get even a glimpse of the peak. Nonetheless, I was able to learn about climbing it, so perhaps in the future....

We did do another cultural village walk, which was a much better experience than in Malawi. The people here seemed much less desperate for money and of course they lived in a beautiful location at the base of Mt. Kiliminjaro.

Visiting the school was the highlight of the walk as we got to see the children in class (although it was a little weird that they let us interrupt class). The children even sang a rendition of "head, shoulders, knees, and toes" for us. We then sang for them "If you're happy and you know it clap your hands." It was a really fun experience.
