After playing games we ate some lunch and then headed out for a short day hike led by Headmaster Longo. We headed up a dusty trail and ran into a heard of goats. Some of the students found themselves trapped among them, but luckily they were friendly! As we hiked up the hill, young children from the town below climbed up to join us. They happily accompanied us for the rest of our journey.
From the top we were able to see Mt. Meru and the beautiful countryside below. This short day hike was just an appetizer for things to come as tomorrow we start our trek up Kilimanjaro! We’ll be out of touch until Friday, but we’ll make sure to take plenty of pictures to share when we return.
