Word from Mount Kilimanjaro!

With the help from Kerith's son Kelly, text message issues are sorted out and we can now post the teams messages from the mountain (although I still haven't figured out what TTFN stands for!).  -Todd

From Mandara Hut at 2675m, the team wrote:

"We arrived at Mandara hut after about four hours of extreme 'Pole Pole', enjoying dense tropical rain forest.  Amazingly at almost 8,000 feet, the vegetation changed to temperate rain forest, very reminiscent of home.  We have just had hot chocolate and popcorn and are now going for a short walk to a nearby crater.  The temperature has dropped to 18C and as I sign off a big male Blue Monkey is yelling at us.
