Where the wild things are

January 25, 2009 - Arusha, Tanzania

Just a quickie from Arusha before we head off to Mafia Island.  Safari this past week was incredible - saw the 'big 5' and then some.  Serengeti was unreal.  Camping in unfenced areas was pretty cool too as animals came into the camp and you could hear the lions.  We kept having to remind ourselves that we weren't in a zoo!  Hope to post more details on the safari soon......maybe :)

Tonight we head to Dar Es Salaam and then off to the island for diving for the next few days.  We're looking forward to staying in one spot for a change!

Thanks for the comments, keep'em coming, if I know people are reading I'm more likely to post!  Hope everyone's well!

PS - Rob, yes that was for you!

Sweet, those nights are always a bit unnerving but so worth it when you wake up in the morning, have fun on the islands and the rest of the trip.
P.S. looking fwd to those pics

well here in Maui there's only wild locals... surf is "flat" which means that it's head high... having fun - glad you are too. See you for recollections in a couple months.

Sarah! I knew you could do it - bah who needs training?!? It's bringing back all the great memories... like the night we were on that last leg, waiting for our midight call to do the final ascent and I could actually feel my pulse pounding in my lips!!!Its crazy what altitude can do. But nice work, I'm proud of you both. How amazing that your mom will be looking over Africa too, that is such a cool thing to do.
Glad you survived the wild animals in the camp ground - how did that peeing in a funnel go? Romantic?
keep the stories coming, it brightens up our dull cold days :)
be safe -love Ruth

if you want me to keep it clean, please refrain from using words like 'quickie.' you are testing my will to restraint. it would also be wise to avoid words like spelunking, testy, trans-continental, petulant, lordosis, bottom, hump and aardvark.
happy trails ...
