So, after two 8 hour flights and a 4 hour layover in Amsterdam, we are here in Tanzania!
Our flights were uneventful (always the best kind), it took us about 20 minutes to get our visas, we waited one minute for our luggage and then found the guy who was picking us up from Team Kilimanjaro. The drive to our hotel took about 45 minutes.
We are doing well so far with the 8 hour time difference from Chicago and just went to bed at the normal time here which was really only 2pm!
M and I met with our climber guide tonight to go over a few details and we're all set to leave for the mountain tomorrow morning!
Follow our progress up Kilimanjaro here if you'd like (our group name is JICO: http://www.teamkilimanjaro.com/track-a-kilimanjaro-climber.html
Wish us luck :)
