A photo of our trekking group on an acclimatization trek up the flanks of Mawenzi. Our assistant guide Musa is on the left. Sitting is a collection of Englishmen, an Irish honeymooner couple, a group of Swiss friends. The Swiss spoke mostly French so, of course, it fell to us Canadians to be the translators.
English had a hell of a time with the altitude, but the Swiss seemed dauntless and did the entire trek on a diet of muesli and dark chocolate.
