Wow. That’s about all I can say. Today was amazing

Started off with finally a good nights sleep, early rise and breakfast. Then a short drive to the Arusha regional airport. It’s exactly like you’d expect an airport to be in a third world country.

We then boarded a small plane. Mom don’t read this. Seats 12. We were the only 3 on board plus the pilot.

I have look happy but I admit I was a little stressed before take off.

S I took 1/2 Xanax and was great. The flight was actually nice and kind of fun. Beautiful to see Africa from the sky. The cloud looked like little cotton candy.

We first landed on an airstrip in the middle of nowhere to pick up other passengers then on to the Serengeti.

  1. I knew the Serengeti would like the Kruger National Park to shame – you are in the most densely populated area of the world for wild game. In the 28 times I have been to Kruger I am not sure I have seen a leopart al though maybe years ago. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do to be with you face to face with our African Wildlife. How the most incredible stay. Enjoy every second – breathe the Tanzanian air so you can bring everything back and share with us. Love you have a blast!!!!! Avrille

  2. Excuse my horrible English. I meant to write put instead of like in the first sentence – also I do know that leapard is spelled with a D and although is one word………………. Not how the most incredible but HAVE – I really messed up that post!!! Avrille
