Travel: Arriving Tanzania

Posted Aug 22 2011 12:00am

HELLO!!!!! I’m back to the US last Saturday! As I mentioned here , I have many travel plans this summer and this time I went to Tanzania for 2 weeks and it’s the best trip I’ve EVER had! Spectacular, Incredible, Amazing, Exciting, Adventurous and HAPPY!!! I feel wordless to express how much I enjoyed this trip! In two weeks, we did Safari in Serengeti, we climbed the highest mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro (We all succeed in getting to the Uhuru peak at 5895 m!!!!) and we spent 3 days in Zanzibar doing beach, parasailing, dolphins and visiting the  Stone Town ! :lol:

I have a lot to recap and a lot of pics to show (I have more than 2000 pics in my computer! :shock: ). Let me first guide you from the first two days in Tanzania.

On 8/4 Sarah (girl on the left), Estelle (center) and I took KLM flight to Kilimanjaro. We stopped in Amsterdam. Here are we, all fresh and excited!

Our first night at Mount Meru Hotel in Arusha
