Monty Python’s Kilimanjaro Expedition

In this classic Monty Python sketch from 1969, John Cleese is just what you don’t want in a tour guide. I have had a few experiences where a trip has felt a bit similar to what Eric Idle expresses before he leaves the office deciding to forgo the Mt. Kilimanjaro Expedition. This sketch was first used in Monty Python’s Flying Circus and was then part of the movie “And Now for Something Completely Different.”

I found this video looking for one on the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal after reading Kraig’s post about sites to see before they change forever. There was this Monty Python video about climbing Mt. Everest, but I liked this one better.
