Today is the first day of the adventure, kind of. I spent the morning packing and repacking my bags, checking my equipment lists to make sure that I hadn't forgotten anything, then unpacked and repacked one last time to make sure. I arrived at London Heathrow and meet with my group, most of whom are strangers. It’s a little weird to think that I'll be heading up Africa's largest mountain with them, but they all look like a great bunch of people. Just have to get through customs first.
