Jet Lag Cubed


I am home from Africa.  I had the most amazing time and felt like I had made a left turn somehow into an African animal documentary on The Nature Channel!  Every day there was some new, amazing thing to see and experience.  I loved every minute of my time in Kenya and Tanzania and I feel very blessed to have been able to take such trip.

The only downside to my incredible trip is the jet lag.  I have never, ever, had such a hard time adjusting to my own time zone.  I seem to only be able to stay asleep until some dark, cold, lonely time between 2 and 5 AM.  I am walking around in a fog most of the time and not moving very quickly or getting things done in my usual manner.  And, yes, I know I have no right to complain!

All of this is just me trying to explain why it will take a few more days before I have a proper first blog post about  my time in Africa.  I am mostly through editing my photos but I still  need to get my notes and travel journal in order so I can explain where I went and what I did.

I thought that you, Dear Reader, might like a little preview of some of the animals I was so lucky to see and photograph.

I still have to pinch myself to be sure I'm not dreaming all of this...that it really happened and that I really, truly got to see all these species, these places and meet these people.

My tan is fading.  My eyes are droopy.  My head is fuzzy with lack of sleep.....but I am so happy to have been on safari and so happy to be able to share some of my experiences with you.

Soon.  I promise.  More is coming.....soon!
