    Wow – I made it to one in Africa once. Hard/hot/difficult – but such a wonderful experience.

      I was in Africa last summer and it was fantastic! I was there during the winter months. When I show people photos they are surprised that I am wearing a winter jacket. They usually say I thought you went to Africa. Isn’t it always hot.

      Very hot. My shoes didn’t melt, but I felt the heat coming up from the rocks we were climbing on. I wouldn’t want to hang out there all day that’s for sure.
