Just getting to Kilimanjaro can be an adventure for those of us in the Western Hemisphere

I had planned to do this trip over Christmas and New Year, with the hope of summiting on New Year's Day. For a number of reasons, I had to reschedule to the third week of January...

From January 19 to 28, 2017, I traveled to Tanzania to climb Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro.

 

I did so in honor and memory of my late girlfriend,  Sueyoung Yoo,  who passed away in 2015 from a ruptured brain aneurysm.

 

Sueyoung was a talented piano player and vocalist. She always had a smile on her face and a vibrant, positive attitude. You can learn all about her at www.Sueyoungyoo.com.

The climb up Kilimanjaro lasted 5 and 1/2 days. I have created a blog entry for each day of the climb, combined with pertinent information about brain aneurysms. Just click the links on the menu at the top of this page.

I hope these posts capture the beauty of the mountain and the challenge in climbing it, while spreading awareness about brain aneurysms.
