Well done to father and son Vas and Lucca Chrysostomou for their amazing achievement of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa.
At 13, Lucca must be one of the youngest to climb Mount Kilimanjaro that is the highest free standing mountain in the world (6000 metres).
Started his climb along with dad Vas on Xmas day and completed their task when reaching the frozen summit on New Year’s morning. What a way to celebrate the start of 2023. Their hard work and preparation for over a year paid off especially overcoming the snow and icy conditions on the last leg that took place overnight New Year’s eve.
They were physically and mentally exhausted but reaching the top was a soothing remedy. After 8 days with no communication Lucca’s first request was the scores of his football team AEK.
The father / Grandfather of Vas and Lucca is the well known to our community Mikkos Chrysostomou who is from Ayios Sergios in Famagusta.
