Ridge Running in East Africa

Ridge Running in East Africa
I entered Ethiopia, went to Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and into Tanzania, I will now go towards Nairobi, Kenya to fly out.

I have been ridge running on mountains the whole trip; I have worn a light jacket the majority of nights. I only needed a fan two times; most problems with mosquitoes can be solved by shutting the windows.

I have always been between 1250 and 2200 meters above sea level on this trip.

This was not what I was anticipating; I only brought with me one pair of long pants, and had to purchase another pair here. Traveling at this altitude is one of the most pleasant experiences on the planet in many ways, and also one of the worst. I am able to sleep easily without a fan, the days are great, never too hot, only one large problem.

The smell, it is horrible.

It would be best to drive your own car and avoid the constantly stink of people in public transportation. 95 percent of tourist and travelers visit East Africa drive cars or on tours and avoid this problem, I am part of the 5 percent who got to smell the place.
