Highland, Utah (PressExposure) August 19, 2009 -- I remember the day I flew into Nairobi, that was thirteen years ago, and I still have a vivid minds eye of that day. Our group was welcomed by the Sherpa agency that was going to assist our trek to Mount Kilimanjaro. It was hot and humid, the flight was long, and I was glad to be in the van traveling to our hotel.
The journey to Kenya soon became very painful for me, because I started to notice the people, the poverty, and the look on their faces. I felt a great sadness for the living conditions of these beautiful people, but at the time in my life I thought "how can I make a difference?"
The next day we drove to Tanzania where we started our trek to Mount Kilimanjaro. Tanzania is a beautiful farming community. It was delightful to see the farmers in their bright red and orange clothing working in the fields and guarding their cattle.
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro was an adventure I had always dreamed of. Kilimanjaro actually means "white mountain." We had a restful night in a comfy bungalow. Bright and early the next morning we drove to the trail head where we started our five day trek up this elusive mountain. Our Sherpa's were incredible, amazed me with their care, strength and skill. Everyday they cooked fabulous meals, brought us hot pans of water, carried our supplies and made us feel like family. It was such an honor for me to have this change to be with these amazing people and learn about their culture.
After the trek we spent time in the Serengeti Plains, watching the natural habitat of the animals of Africa. The week I spend in the wild Serengeti was one of the most amazing times of my life.
Our last visit was the village of Emori Joi. The people that live in this village have no water, no healthcare, no school for their 603 children and no resources, nada! The women and children carry their drinking water four to five miles, everyday. The water they fetch is unclean and caused diseases like malaria, and typhoid.
I left my heart with these people!
Isn't it amazing how life makes a full circle back to us, when we are least expecting it!
