Coming back down is mandatory

    Bruno – congratulations on your successful summit of Kili. I’m planning a January 2013 trip. 9 Day Lemosho Route via the western breach (sound familiar?). I was hoping that you would give me permission to use some of your photos on a Facebook page and video that I’m planning on making BEFORE my trip – the hope is that by showing exciting images and sounds (i’ll be using others photos and videos as well) that I’ll generate some interest and hopefully get a large group of trekkers to come with me. I’ll be happy to credit you in any way you’d prefer – I see that you’ve watermarked all photos with this website’s address – I could simply use as is, but if I were to crop any photos (for size sake) I’ll be happy to reproduce the watermark to this site. Thanks and congratulations!!! Sean in Michigan
