....Overall I had the feeling of a light SPA-trekking. We were walking along the route, grandly, within the framework of the notorious African concept of the "pole – pole". Even for me it was too "pole", even though I am not speed-walker, especially after a 3 year hiatus. I was fed to the slaughter, I had to make an effort not to offend the chef, who was perceived to heart, if his almost elephantine portions are not eaten whole. The expression "Kura Niyama" has come into use ( it means "eat meat").

  A Day of  climbing in general did not violate the SPA concept, I slept on the way to the top, the benefit that the rate was not high, woke up only at the last rocky part, thanks to a team of Scandinavians, our only companions that day. They were very sentimental, some even cried, when he came to the top plate...  Down  it was to 3300 m long and tiring walking, but we did it at last.

 Carnivor and a national park have been a great success.

The positive "no": I did not wait for the arrival of mountain sickness, did not use medical insurance. The negative "not" - have not lost weight ( thanks to the chef))).

But, as they say, Hakuna Matata...

 Thanks all for the nice trip!...
