Perfect Breakefast Before Final Summit Attempt On Kilimanjaro

Today is the last day we have before we make the final push. Josephat (our guide) promised us only 5 hours of walk today, because we need to preserve our strength for the next day.

Knowing we will have easy going day, Alex and I decide to spend quit a lot of time just chillaxing inside the tent. Once Martin approached us with the "hand waaaashing", "breakfast reeeeady", we discover the neat table with the two chairs just in front of our tent. The view towards Mt. Kilimanjaro is amazing...

we stopped here...

Even we built our own tower. Early next year should figure out if the dream i wished will come true...

And this is the last flower in the mountain before the rocks and cold winds reign.

Short before we get to Barafu camp (4600masl), we stopped with Alex and like paparazzi start photographing the passing by porters.

Around 1 pm we were already at Barafu Camp 4600masl.  It's time for loooong relax. All kind of thoughts both of us have in our heads...but mostly we concentrate on the last challenge we are about to face.

The dinner we have is strong: lots of meat, fresh fruits,  and hot soup. Regardless that most of the porters don't speak much English, they came to us and give us their "choco bars"...everybody is doing his best to motivate us. It is going to be extremely though night...our final summit attempt will start right after midnight at 1 am. The expected outside temperature should be -7°C and we have to survive for 10 to 13 hours out there...

Just to remind us we are the the murcey of the mountain, right after dinner we witness a mountain storm...but what surprises Mt. Kilimanjaro has for us...very soon we are about to find out
