Eight !

We’re now 8 climbers, that’s the maximum possible. Marek Witoszek from British Columbia joined us, so we’ll be 3 Canadians 😀

Tim has put on his website a page with the photo of all climbers, including us: http://itsinafricayouknow.com/climbingpartners.html

Add 3 porters to Marek, and we’re now 36 climbing together, that’s a lots of people !

We’re currently trying to finish our gears preparation. I’ve decided to get a new hardshell for this adventure, my winter coat is perfect for Quebec but is too big, and having done some walks with it demonstrated me that it was not imper-respirant as much as I’d like. So tomorrow I’ll go and buy the last gears to finalize the preparation.

Took my second and last dose of Dukoral this morning, hoping that this will help me not to be sick on the mountain !

Otherwise I’ve received yesterday the 3rd edition of the book from Henry Steldman. Didn’t had the time to read it, but at first glance there are more color photos, updated routes, and GPS localization of all the most important points included, quite interesting !
