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.

Welcome home, then. I hope it was a fruitful trip. Enjoy the sound of leaves crunching underfoot.

Welcome back. Anxiously awaiting your stories. Enjoyed the ones you already graced us with. Travel could really cause realizations of how fortunate we are, with the conveniences we enjoy.

Your trip sounds fun. Sorry about the shirts. Tusker looks like it is the sh*t!
