The Mwalimu Nyerere/Mt. Kilimanjaro Charity Climb 2010 (post 12 of 12)

This is the twelfth of twelve posts on the December 2010 Mt. Kilimanjaro climb.
*******************************************************
Monday 14 December 2011
Yesterday, a bruised toe forced Jaffar to trade his boots for sandals after we passed Millennium High Camp.

Other climbers rush past us as Jaffar and Solomon pose for yet another photo.
He also wore the sandals today on the final stretch from Mweka Camp to Mweka Gate. We were once again back in the forest and having carried two cameras during this climb I had the luxury of taking many photos of some of the flowers and plants of Kilimanjaro.
 
 

Kilimanjaro Impatiens, Impatiens kilimanjari.

 

At the edge of the road we were picked up by a rescue vehicle because of Jaffar’s bruises and rode the few remaining kilometres to the gate by car. The Mwalimu Nyerere/Mt. Kilimanjaro Charity Climb was over for this year.
