I hope to come back in a couple weeks and report that the trip was a success dietarily!

I'm a little nervous. We're leaving to start our Tanzania vacation tomorrow, starting with climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. My fate rests in the hands of a tour company. I'm certain they'll get me to the summit safely and soundly. I'm never certain, though, that despite assurances they can feed me properly, they actually will. They say they've had gluten-free trekkers before. They recommended I bring some of my own bread, pasta, and cereal to substitute the "regular" stuff that's usually provided. It can't go that wrong, can it? Taking food responsibility out of your own hands is always a tad risky.
