Happy New Year!! I touched down in Kilimanjaro with what I thought would be plenty of time to get to town for the new year's fireworks. Unfortunately they were having trouble attached the stairs to the plane (which makes no sense to me, seeing as they do it everyday). But in any case, it meant we had to sit on the plane for another 45 minutes while they managed to assemble some stairs. So close yet so far!
But my bags (yup, both of them made it this time!) were waiting for me on the other side and I made it into Arusha just in time to get a fireworks-watching spot.
And after a meal today that left me feeling like most of the food was still stuck in my teeth, my first new year's resolution is to floss every day. Wish me luck!
