fuji moutain


hey guys..ive been in late to tell you my way on top of the FUJImountain!!!
appointment at Kawaguchiko at 9.00 pm. and start to go up atmidnight..
it was a warm night, 26 degrees, nice weather and alot of people all together ready to go. Before going the guide told us to bring something very very very warm to wear because it will be cold in the morning; then he checked how many people in the group and started to climb. The mountain isn't a green land with trees, streams of water or summer flowers...it's like a vulcano. Hard brown soil made of rock, all over, nothing else. i colud see the land skape around me thanks to the light on my hat bought jusr few meters before to understaind what i was doing and, most of all, to remember.
After a while, it was midnight. Me and my boyfriend stopped to have a rest for few minutes. I sat down on (guess where..?) a big brown rock...drank a sip of sportsdrinik and i turned my had on the way me walked trhough. I couldn't believe to my eyes..tousand of others tourist where behind us foe the same porpouse!All togehter, wiht thoise tiny lights, walking and singing in the middle of the nicht on the way to the TOP! i din't say anything, just twinkled to my boyfriend then went back to our mission. He was terribly tired and i didn't blame him! we walked silently for anothe hour and half without saying anything..everytime i left his hand to reach my backpack he took it back and take what i needed because scared i might lose the concentration and slide down the road. We walked always togher like that..
the moon started to get bigger and bigger..was almost "there" where we thought will be the TOP of the great mountain. The road seemed neverending. At 3.30 everyone was exausted and it cold..
We reached the TOp at 4.00 o'clock in the morning and the price for what we did was an amazing sunrise coming up from the hearth, overcrossing hills then the clouds..the sunrise became the sun while we were heading back to the real world from the Top of the FUji..
