Had a really good day today we Hiked up to Moshi gate which is 1800 metres only a quarter of the way up Kilimanjaro, this is where we start the hike from tomorrow so today was a practice walk to see what its likens to get a feel of what to expect and tonight has been all about getting our bags packed and reducing 19 kg which I arrived with down to 12 kg which is the max amount allowed for our sherpa's to carry so again I'm faced with the dilemma of what to leave behind and with most of us it's the food that is being sacrificed- nnooooo!!!!!
So we are up at 6.30am down to breakfast then we start the hike at 8am, we will be hiking for 7 hours and hopefully get to our first camp site at around 4pm. The food has been amazing much better than expected with fresh fruit and veg(my favourite) everyday so really looking forward to the food on the climb and with around 40 of us (sherpa's and guides included)the atmosphere as well.so it's off to bed now as its around 23.15pm, next update will be from somewhere on Mount Kilimanjaro good night all.
