In to Africa


Well here I sit at YVR waiting for:

Plane ride #1 – Vancouver to Paris 9 hours and 45 minutes

Plane ride #2 – Paris to Nairobi 8 hours and 5 minutes

Plane ride #3 – Nairobi to Kilimanjaro City 3 hours and 11 minutes.

Leave Vancouver 1:30 Sunday afternoon and arrive Tanzania at 3:10 Tuesday morning.

I’m going with the Me to We organization. Check out what they are all about.

Should be a wealth of incredible experiences. Helping to build a school, seeing how people live in a small African community, going on a one day safari, climbing to base camp of Kilimanjaro and living with 23 women and 1 other man for 13 days.

Should also be interesting in terms of photography- it is frowned upon to take random photos of people. One needs to have developed a relationship with individuals beforehand. Chances of continuing the Shoe Blog might be limited.

Finally, we will have limited (read no) access to the internet, so although I will write a daily (hopefully) post, I won’t be able to publish until the 21st or 22nd. Look for them then.

Okay, so I am not really supposed to have done this, but on the other hand I did take it on the beach in Penticton yesterday so it doesn’t really count.

Look closely- Just what you wear to the beach

    Enjoy and be careful. Will look for the photos. You two are amazing and likely of great help to others in far away places. Good on you both. Lois and Gerry

    Oh what fun to visit Africa. My sister and I went with 34 others way back in 1990. On a David Skillan Tours and Safaris. One of the best trips I have taken. We needed some injections re typhoid and cholera and whatever else. Also tablets for malaria. No doubt you both know all this. (I am just doing my nurse thing.) Have a fabulous trip, be careful of lions that appear to be sleeping! Look forward to any info.
