Mt Kilimanjaro from the air.jpg
Today sees all the folks from Stanford starting out on their long flights to Africa. Adrian is flying from Denver, through Amsterdam, and the whole team will be meeting up in Tanzania. If they are very lucky, they will get an aerial view like this one from a previous trip (thanks to Mbwana Alliy for the photograph). Later — after a lot of hard work — they will hopefully all see the view from the summit!

If anyone is sad to have missed this opportunity to experience Africa and the thrill of climbing one of the famed Seven Continental Summits, don’t fret! You can still sign up for the next offering of this trip, which runs at the end of December.
