We came across a link to your website while researching our trip from Tanzanian to Cape Town (Feb 2008) on Thorn Tree. We're doing a similar route but in reverse. We've really been enjoying your interesting/fun accounts and superb photography and wanted congratulate you on making it up Kili and also on your engagement (Deb was in tears while reading that part!). Wishing you many more adventures on your travels and a happy life together and feel free to look us up if you're ever coming through Vancouver.
