And the ‘fari continues….

So we did this all more than a week ago, but it is Africa, and we were t.v. and computer free for essentially 2 weeks.  It was a nice break…..learning to just be still and smelling the dampened earth, exhaust free air, plumeria on the warm evening air.  I could go on and on.  Have I ever mentioned that plumeria is one of my favorite scents…could it be because I am always in Hawaii when I smell it?  I loved it here too.

Our safari was fantastic.  I don’t think that I would have changed a moment of it.  It allowed us to have wonderful quality time with Ian’s parents, and also much needed time together as our own little family.  Ian loved the spontaneous loves he got to give and receive from the kids while out on the game drives and walking around our tented camp.  So did I.

On our last evening, we enjoyed hanging out outside of the tented camp open air dining hall chatting with the hotel manager.  He is a medical doctor who later went into tourism after many years of frustrated work at Kenyan district hospitals.  What a wonderful, intellectual discussion we had with him ranging from spinal tuberculosis to how the American economy trickles down to reduced Kenyan tourism dollars.  Here Kapur is identifying animals with Eli and Lucy and chatting with our family:

A few fun other photos from the safari:

And we got a rare photo of us all together!
