Coming Soon: East African Wildlife Extravaganza Recaps

My mom and our good friend D just left Kampala after a phenomenal three week visit. We spent 2.5 weeks straight on safari (minus travel time) and accomplished/saw so much. We visited three parks in Uganda and then three more in Tanzania and had an absolutely amazing time. We tracked mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest (the hardest/most amazing thing I've ever done), saw the Big 5 and much more, and learned a lot about different cultures in Uganda and Tanzania. What an adventure! And how special was it to be able to share my life here with my mom? I know when she visited me in South Africa (pre-FS) for a similarly-packed itinerary, it was so special for her to get a glimpse into my life. They even got to visit the Embassy and meet my colleagues and observe a session of one of my outreach initiatives.

I anticipate it will take some time for me to sort through the many thousands of photos I took and to recap our amazing travels, so bear with me.

More coming soon...
