Another Good Read
For all you baboon fans, I just finished reading a great book "A Primate's Memoir" by Robert M. Sapolsky. He's a neuroscientist who studied baboons for over 20 years. Lots of interesting stories about Kenya, the Masai, his travels through Africa and his troop of baboons.

A Primate's Memoir is one of my all time favorite books! It's like Jane Goodall,Dave Barry, and Bill Bryson all rolled into one! I've read it at least 3 times.

Good book. Though sometimes almost TOO funny.

Have ordered the book - but, Nyamera your message has me wondering... "TOO funny"???

some of his tales are hilarious...the tourist with the larynx box who the Masai swore was really a machine, not a human...too funny!
