Mount Kenya.

Our major aim is to improve the Mount Kenya article. This involves working on the articles that link from Mount Kenya as well. When we first found the Mount Kenya article it was still a stub.

Two people actually work under this account name, Mehmet Karatay and Gemma Richards. This happened by accident, but now we work together most of the time so it doesn't seem worth having separate accounts. To avoid confusion on discussion pages we'll write in the first person singular as the user name doesn't imply otherwise. We live in Edinburgh.

Wikipedia is a great excuse to research things that interest us to a greater depth than we would do otherwise. It is also an excellent place to practise and improving our writing.

Picture of the day[edit]

Charlottenburg Palace

Charlottenburg Palace is a large palace in Charlottenburg, a part of the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf borough of Berlin, Germany. The palace was built at the end of the 17th century and expanded during the 18th century. It includes much exotic internal decoration in baroque and rococo styles. It was badly damaged during the Second World War, but has since been reconstructed, becoming a major tourist attraction.

This is our section to thank everybody who's written the free software that we use almost everyday. We were hoping not to fill this page with too many boxes. Saying that, it's an ideal place to give a decent thank you to all those who put in the time. That is after all the same ideology behind Wikipedia.
