Barafu











Tuesday March 14,2206








Slept great for the first night and ate well. Hopefully I have finally acclimated. Not sleeping and not eating are signs of altitude sickness. Today the climb was only 700 feet in altitude to get to Barafu Camp. We are at 4600 meters. It is so cold outside and inside the tent is like an oven with the sun beating down at 3pm. Tomorrow we climb 4000 feet to summit Kili.

"He who climbs the highest mountains laughs at all tragedies, real or imaginary."
Friedrich Nietzsche
