Nacht im Karanga Camp

Eiskalte, klare Nacht im Karanga-Camp am Südhang des Kilimanjaro in ungefähr 4.000 m Höhe. Aus dem Tal unten leuchten die Lichter von Moshi im Süden und Arusha weiter im Westen herauf. Im Norden ist schemenhaft der Gipfel des Uhuru-Peak mit seinen Gletscherzungen zu erkennen. Und über allem spannt sich ein Sternenhimmel mit unzählig vielen strahlenden Sternen.

Eine ziemliche Plackerei auf dieser Tour die Kamera-Ausrüstung nebst Stativ, Fernauslöser, Fisheye, Ersatzakkus, Speicherkarten und das ganze sonstige Gerödel mitzuschleppen. Aber es hat sich gelohnt!

(...auch wenn das Bild rauscht, die Sterne teilweise wegen der langen Belichtungszeit Striche gebildet haben, das Bild in Teilen unscharf ist.....)

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
