So it's been a really long time since I have posted. It occurred to me recently that the last you heard of me was that I was travelling to Kenya on safari for my birthday.
This was followed by radio silence. I did not die.
And the trip was absolutely amazing. The best I have ever taken hands down.
Please enjoy the highlights.
|Me and the elephants in Samburu|
|I took this picture immediately after a lioness walked in front of our van.|
I was so excited.
|This was me and the lioness I saw already (see expression above), |
except this day I am more composed.
|Shelly, Bob and I with a Samburu village|
|The elephant camp|
|with its dinner. Po' impala.|
|A baboon, eating Ruffles.|
|We visited a school, which was fun|
|I went on a balloon ride over the Maasai Mara|
|I may or may not have sung Lion King|
|The zebra and wildebeest run together|
|The multicultural ballooners|
|Cheetah #1 that I spotted... Gah. Gorgeous.|
|I am in both Tanzania and Kenya. Boom.|
|Vultures, hippos, and crocodiles, oh my!|
|Cheetah #2, who had been nomming on a wildebeest|
|Then she was forced away by a troupe of baboons|
|Water spins different ways depending on what side of the equator|
you are on and is still on the actual line. True story. SCIENCE.
|The group: Bev, Shelly, Bob, myself, and John|
|They threw me a surprise birthday party and invited the Maasai warriors to come and|
dance/ sing Happy Birthday to me in Swahili. It was pretty rad. No lie.
|You know dat's right.|
|The Great Rift Valley... So gorgeous.|
Kenya 2013. No regrets.
