Kilimanjaro - Day 4.9 (Longest Day Ever)

So then... we hiked for about 6 more hours... up to Lava Rock to acclimate which was amazing and then down and up through the Karanga Valley. .. which was excruciating. My little cough had become deep and brutal. My body finally reacted to altitude with a digestive battle.... By the time I got to the Barafu Camp it was 5:30 pm. I crawled into my tent without dinner and simply cried. The cook sent cinnamon and honey tea for my cough and ginger cookies for my stomach by way of my kind porter Ema.. I had five hours before my Tanzanian brother, guide and angel, Frank would awaken me for the twelve hour attempt to reach the summit..... I have never been so exhausted. #CautionCurvesAhead #Kilimanjaro #GetClimbing

I'm a Laura Mercier and Nars kinda girl!
