And you’d think it was 5 in the afternoon. The joint is hoppin’ as usual. Off to Nairobi in two hours. If you’ve never flown on KLM, they have the best food and service. The meatballs were almost as good as the ones at Ikea!

Welcome to Europe! Don't know if you've been before, but if you have time on the way back, Amsterdam is a very pleasant place to walk around. Canals, markets, waffles with peanut sauce...

Thanks vomer! I’ve been here a bunch of times. Germany, France, Spain, and Italy too. Even lived south of Athens for a year.

It is good to be back.

I was there about 20 years ago.
After I finished teching three bands, I walked across the street and bout a ticket for a Jack Bruce show.
Band was great, mix was awful.

(coffee was good)

Peegoo, I've flown KLM often, at least 20 times, while traveling to & from the US to the Middle East, and Schipol airport is well organized and has anything you want, although it's very large. Making a connection at a terminal on the other end can be crazy unless you have plenty of time. Also, their first class lounge is a great place if you have a long wait.

First class all the way, baby.

We’re at the Giraffe Manor Hotel (Link Below) about 45 minures outside Nairobi. There’s a bowl of Purina Giraffe Treats here in the room, and the giraffes come to the rooms’ balconies every morning.

I’ll post a video when I get a chance.

âPlushâ does not begin to describe this place.

This looks like a great honeymoon. (-;

It was funny to see your recording distraction with the bacon on the hoof trotting through the scene.

LOL right!

We hopped into a bush plane and flew east to Elsa’s Skopje safari camp. On the ride from the airstrip to the camp we saw giraffe, elephant, cape buffalo, gazelle, velvet monkeys, zebra, ans several other bunches of critters.

This camp is quite remote, but they have a solar inverter power system and wifi. There’s a pool, a bar, and a massage joint. The food is amazing. The manager, George, is very much like the dangerous game guide from the original Jurassic Park film, but a whole lot nicer. He and his wife are Dutch, and he has years of experience as a guide and camp manager. We’re taking a wildlife drive this afternoon and will do a ‘sundowner’ in the bush, complete with munchies and drinks.

Looks like a wonderful trip. Keep the updates coming. It's probably the only way I'll ever see it.

A-ok.

We saw a pride of eight lions that had just killed a cape buffalo. They were laying in a creekbed, their bellied big and round. One young male walked right up to the open land cruiser, and Wilson (our guide) said, “keep really still...”. Nobody freaked out, but my hunnie scooted in her seat toward the center of the land cruiser.

When a predator like a lion looks you in the eye, and there are no bars between you, it puts you ina mental place that is not exactly comfortable.

I might be still but my heart would be running.
