On Day 1 of our climb hiking up to Machame Camp, the rain started to pour. After an hour of solid rain, we ran into our first big issue on Kilimanjaro. It wasn’t with our group, it was another. There were two girls, wearing nothing more than shorts and tank tops, in the pouring rain. These girls didn’t even anything to keep them dry. There looked very upset, were soaked, a bit stressed out since there trip just started, and were trying to communicate with their assistant guide, who didn’t speak any English.
