So what was the best part of the trip? Was it the people I traveled with? The new ones I met in a foreign land and befriended? Was it learning about a new culture? Seeing my profession practiced with less than basic supplies? Or was it the scenery, the animals or what?

It was the PEOPLE!!! The ones who crossed half the World with me and the new ones I met.

I would like to sign off with a beautiful epitaph that our most-capable driver and compatriot, Jackson, showed us upon leaving the Serengeti:

“It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”

Thank you Kim Shriner for your incredible drive and passion for introducing us to AFRICA.
