Me, at dinner, the first night on Kili. Look how clean I look on day 1 of 5 without a shower.
The huts at Mandara are on the edge of the rainforest, still within the treeline, and are downright cosy. There's a nice little dining hut, and sleeping huts with four bunks each. We laughed like maniacs going to sleep that night, making fun of the performance anxiety of Flip's steripin (water purifier). When darkness submerged us, the screeching of the colobus monkeys in the night made the many nocturnal trips to the loo unearthly, to say the least.
