After checking the condition of the road from Dodoma to Iringa with our contacts, we opted on taking the bus. Pedal2Peak’s first experience of public transport in Tanzania!
Marc and I were barely 10km from Babati when we had to stop. Marc’s back tyre was flat. We jumped into action and whipped the wheel off and repaired it in no time…
At a dinner party last weekend, these incredible chilli and garlic roast potatoes blew us away. There wasn’t a morsel left for seconds! I fluttered my eyelids at the host and managed to get the recipe for you.
Our stay in Arusha was longer than expected, but the guys from Grandmaster Records were to kind and helped us backup all our media and let me use their facilities to update all the blogs.
Camping on a mountain where it’s hot during the day and freezing at night, bathing with 1L of water that’s been warmed up a bit, drinking boiled water from rivers and springs, walking 3-6 hours a day (on summit day it’s a 10 hour walk in total).

We were woken up at 11pm to get ready and have a snack of tea and biscuits before starting out to Kilimanjaro’s summit, Uhuru Peak, 5895m above sea level.
The Pedal2Peak finally reached Kilimanjaro to climb to its peak as the highlight of their fundraising tour for South Africa’s National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI)…
When I was growing up, my mother used to make these pita pockets stuffed with roast chicken and pineapple for Saturday lunches. I love them as much now as I did then.
