Back from Africa
I've been back from Africa for just a couple of hours. Yesterday, I was on a safari game drive in Kenya in the morning watching zebras and elephants, and now I'm here. I'll have more travel stories soon from Mali, Cameroon, and Kenya. I travel frequently for work and play. For some of my favorite places, click here. Lots of times when I travel, I'd like to be able to say I'm Canadian. There's just too much political baggage (which I did not choose and am not responsible for) traveling as a US citizen. I expect my next trips to be to Bangladesh, Nepal, and Tierra del Fuego, at the southern tip of South America.
It will take a few days to untopsy-turvy my world--to get over jet lag, to adjust to it now being Fall (the trees have started to change and all my summer clothes are still thrown around the bedroom from when I left), to see the miracle of electricity and water (hot!) working every day, to eat on a normal schedule, and to get things back in order. I'm happy happy happy to have clean clothes. I planned to take six shirts. I left two in the dryer. One got a hole right away. Another was filthy after the first wear, which means for about two weeks, I've been switching back and forth between two shirts.
