Here is a typical lunch meal on Kilimanjaro. You always have a mystery soup, possibly some meat – like this chicken that was cooked to bone (but tasted dam good) – and a tuna fish and vegetarian pasta. Sometimes when you are walking long days, then you bring a bag lunch, which the cooks give you in the morning. It’s usually a sandwhich, egg, some cookies, a piece of meat, and a bannana.
On some of the shorter days, the porters can set up a lunch site – tables, chairs, and even a mess tent – so they you can eat inside, out of the rain or wind. This usually only happens with big slow groups or high quality trips up the mountain.
