Penguins to Puku: Report on Cape Town and S. & N. Luangwa

Jump to last reply

First and Foremost—THE WINE LIST. I am putting the finishing touches on my wine list that will appear in red at the end of Cape Town and Simons Town.

Tripgirl, if you are reading, I hope you tune in to that part because you may get a chuckle and your comments and insights will be appreciated.

Unlike the wine list, which is nearly complete, the photos are far from it and the link to them will have to be at the end of the report.

The first photo that will eventually appear in the Kodak Easy Share Gallery album is surely destined for Africa Geographic. I believe it is a photographic first of an interaction never before witnessed. So BillH, Skimmer, and Andy Biggs take note! The picture is so remarkable that I no longer suffer my camera inferiority complex, “Pentax envy.” In fact, I’ll be expecting a call from Banana Republic.
