Africa Trip Blog

In February 2013 we traveled to Africa from Portland, Oregon, on Delta, via Amsterdam, arriving at Kilimanjaro Airport in the early evening of February 6. It was too dark to visibly see Mt. Kilimanjaro. We were pretty exhausted after flying for nearly 20 hours, trying to adjust to the time change practically half way around the world from Portland. We met a few people bound for the Cheesman’s eco tour of Tanzania and Kenya, but mostly we just wanted to get some rest. It was nearly 10 p.m. when we arrived the Mountain Village Lodge just outside of Arusha. The staff greeted us, “Jumbo. Jumbo,” offering us fresh fruit juice and a warm bed. Then we crashed, preparing for our new adventure in Africa.
