Out of Africa - Back to Luray
January 16, 2012
Dear Inn guests and blog readers!
Happy New Year 2013!
We have returned from Africa! Tanzania to be precise. Mike, Lukas and Tom did reach the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro on January 3 at 7:48 am. You can tell it was a big deal because the certificate lists not only the date but also the time of summit. When else is the time listed on a certificate, besides a birth or a death certificate?
Anyway, they said it was really hard, scary during the lightning hail storm, wet, frosty, stinky (they themselves) and at the same time awesome and deeply rewarding to the point of tears on the summit. Quick summary is: "It was awesome Mom, but I never want to do it again."
I met them after descent and did the two day Safari into Ngorongoro Crater, created by God after he (she) had made the whole rest of the world already and could take time and create this piece of paradise in a relaxing way. We got to see the 'Big 5' and many more African animals. I think I can say this trip exceeded our expectations.
What an absolutely wonderful beginning of our year 2013!
We hope your new year will bring more happiness and health than you thought it might.
