    Apparently you can now paraglide off of Kilimanjaro! Sound like something you’ll be doing in the near future? Lol.

    "Kissing Kilimanjaro is a terrific account of the physical and emotional journey to the top of Kilimanjaro and it is told with humor, an eye for detail, and a sense of humbleness. I started the book the afternoon I received it and I could not put it down until I finished it. Anyone who has ever climbed a mountain, trekked across some storied route, or just dreamed of adventure will relate to this story." --Amazon.com

    “Daniel Dorr’s Kissing Kilimanjaro is a marvelous story, the kind of narrative that will appeal to readers of hardcore mountaineering literature and casual travel mis-adventure stories alike. His observations about East Africa, the cultures and wildlife, and the adventure he ultimately circles in on—that is, climbing ‘Kili’—are a delightful escape.”
