Have you ever noticed when you set yourself a deadline the time just flies by?
A whole year has flown past and I'm still working on putting my journal from my trip to Africa last summer on my travel blog.
Thing is, I said I'd finish it before a year had passed and I'm cutting it pretty close. Today I'm working on the journal entries for September 7, 2005 and if I'm not mistaken it's the 4th of September of this year. So that's why I haven't been writing much in my regular blog this week.
Last year, on September the 4th I was riding a camel out to visit the Maasai village of Meserani in Tanzania.
Now you can go to my travel blog and read the entire account of that if you like (the link is at the left margin of this page), but in a nutshell I chose a very nice camel with a flair for individuality and he decided to break the rope tethering him to the rest of the caravan.
Sungura the Camel danced nimbly away from the camel handler (that's the fellow in purple) and resisted all attempts to be roped again for a few minutes.
So there I was, taking pictures and looking down from the tall back of a camel, and laughing my head off. Good times, my friends, good times!
I crossed something off my "Things to Do Before I Die List" that day.
What's on your list?
