We have just returned home and wanted to let you know that we had a great time on the trek. Much of the credit is due to the cook, who did a great job in coordinating our trip and cooked up meals that we all enjoyed – including our kids. His cooking was fresh and tasty and the combination of vegetable soup and pasta made a great start to the adventure for my son who loves pasta and was getting a bit nervous about the local food.
We also appreciated his thoughtfulness especially in regards to the needs of our kids. On the last day he coordinated a mule to carry our daughter, who was starting to struggle. With her riding on the mule we made Imet Gogo in good time and this motivated her to complete the trek well. The others on the trek were also great including the guide, the scout and the assitant cook.
All round it was a great trek and one of the main highlights of our trip. It features in all our stories as we recount our holiday to friends and we will always remember the dramatic views of the Simiens as well as the friendship of the trekking party that helped us see it all. Thanks again for organizing the trek for us.
