Off to Africa!

Off to Africa!

So, I’ve spent a little over a month in Toronto, which I’m loving. Obviously, the company is part of it, since I’m here w/my… I don’t know what to call him. Sweetheart, beau, boyfriend? At any rate, we’re having a terrific time. And that would be one reason the blog posts have not been as frequent.

We’ve been exploring the city, meeting up w/friends, and getting ready for more travel.

This one is a doozy. We’re leaving Sunday for about 3 wks in Africa. First up is a wk in Durban, South Africa where he & his work partner are presenting at a conference. Then, we leave for Nairobi and take off on a 2-wk safari!!! Yes, that’s right.

We’ll be seeing all kinds of animals & it’s also migration season for the¬†wildebeests¬†& zebras. And we’ll be stopping by Olduvai gorge, where some of the oldest human remains were found. Typical of me, that & the flamingos are what I’m looking forward to the most.

To get ready, I’ve been watching Planet Earth DVD’s & getting lots of immunization. And yes, I have bugspray & malaria pills. And a camera. I think I’m ready… I hope I’m ready…
