Although this was not your typical safari of the well-to-do with all the conveniences of luxury lodges and linen tablecloths for dinner, I was pleasantly surprised at the amenities we did have, including delicious food, wine, Guinness and Kilimanjaro beer with dinner. We had hot showers in the afternoon from a solar shower set up in the open. When arriving at the next camp, it was a relief to see the tents all set up, coffee and tea on the fire and dinner being prepared.
There is much more to tell about my many adventures and the changes that have occurred in me both visibly and at a cellular level. I believe and feel that walking, camping, and standing on that ancient earth has begun transforming me in ways I don’t yet realize. I feel a new vitality, a new connection, and a new strength of passion for this planet and its inhabitants. And I am glad to be home with my wife, my friends and family. I am grateful that I live in the modern world, but also aware that sometimes it is a bit too modern.
More stories soon. . .
With Tanzania in my heart and soul I finish this narrative for now ~
