Day 5 – Pole pole

Pole pole is Swahili for slowly slowly. And that is what we are doing now. Going up goes slower than normal, if you don’t want to get out of breath. We only did a short hike today, maybe three and a half hours, so we left late. This was a good way to avoid the “traffic jams” on the Barranco wall.

After our daily hike it’s a lot of drinking tea, relaxing, drinking tea, eating popcorn, drinking tea, having dinner and drinking some more tea. So after this week that’s enough tea and popcorn for the rest of the year. And of course long nights (it’s winter here) with lot’s of sleep.

Another strange thing, the sun turns north instead of south. My entire feeling for direction is completely gone.
