Why are you reporting this puzzle?

The origin of the name Kilimanjaro is not known, but a number of theories exist. European explorers had adopted the name by 1860 and reported that Kilimanjaro was the mountain's Kiswahili name. The 1907 edition of The Nuttall Encyclopædia also records the name of the mountain as Kilima-Njaro. Johann Ludwig Krapf claimed in 1860 Kilimanjaro meant either mountain of greatness or mountain of caravans. Jim Thompson claimed in 1885 that the term Kilima-Njaro "has generally been understood to mean" the mountain (kilima) of greatness (njaro). There are many other unsupported theories as to the origin of the name.

Yes it certainly is TykeExile, I always enjoy reading a history etc. of a puzzle.

My books got lost in the mail but I managed to find one one of them, a book of short stories, in a local bookstore + A Farewell to Arms for only $6! Jigidi is at its best when it's entertaining and informative.

Hi Sequin thank you! I am glad we are encouraging each other while having fun doing puzzles; I hope you enjoy reading the story. :) This one also made me read an article by one of Slovenian high-altitude climbers who described the ascent to Kilimanjaro (not by the trekking route).

You got me interested since the only book of his that I have ever read is The Old Man and the Sea. I just ordered it sent to my Kindle.

Thank you again! The other day, I decided to read The Snows of Kilimanjaro after solving your puzzle. :)
