Africa Amazing.....





Africa was AMAZING. I can not believe that I can say I have been to AFRICA.. We went on a 7 day safari. I lived the lion king movie.. I seen things I thought I would never see. Every day was exciting. When I shut my eyes to go to sleep I seen the animals going by just like I was still on safari hunting for my next animal to shot ...with my camera. . I could have stayed up 24 hours of each day so that I would not miss a thing. The warm days and cool nights. The noises of the darkness. The lightning in the sky at night. Wondering what was being hunted in the darkness for a midnight meal. One morning Kenny and I got up got dressed. Had our cameras ready and our day pack ready to go. We sat on the bed and wondered is anyone else was ready for breakfast.. just to find our it was 3:30 am...

I am working on getting my pictures all in order. I have 1,000. Plus videos.

Just a couple of things were hard to take.. ... the public bathrooms... or toilets as they call them or the LONG DROP.. (funny but true .. great name)॥ ॥ ya that's right just a hole in the ground... squat and pee... no seat.. but it did flush.... no paper most of the time.. .. I usually splashed on my shoes when I went। The last leg of the flight home was miserable। It was a 20 hour trip. The last 8 hours on the plane were difficult to set still. I got car sick a couple of times. But.....the trip was Amazing. If you would like to see more about Africa's toilets visithttp://foodfunfarm.blogspot.com/2009/04/tanzanian-toilets.html#comment-form

I love the photo's you've posted so far - sounds like you had a wonderful trip ! Can't wait to read more .... Yes, public toilets are quite awful & we never stop at them, it's more hygenic to just stop on the roadside & squat behind a bush or termite mound - you get used to it after a while ;)
