great trip!!!!

I am at the Cape Cadogan in Cape Town -- will be flying out later tonight to Amsterdam and then home on Thursday. We have had a wonderful trip -- really saw a lot of great stuff from lion cubs -- 7 weeks old -- to leopard and porcupine and wartlets -- 3-4 weels old. Our time with Selwyn was fabulous -- anyone who gets to go with him is very lucky indeed. But gpo hungry because he always has another place for you to eat. Doesn't matter if you just ate.

Kayamundi was a very interesting place. It as not a canned presentation. We just accompanied him while he did his rounds and found it fascinating -- We went into shacks and really saw it as a home -- never had really considered it before. Everyone has a tv even though they do not have running water. We went into a regular home and met a child whose parents paid 70% of their income so that she and her brothers could get a good education. What surprised Mike most was that we went into a home and the person was dishing up her dinner. He said hello and she offered him her dinner. To us they have so little but they freely share what they have. It tryly was a special experience that if you can experience you will benefit from.

Taxi's coming in a few minutes so we will write more when we return. Truly a great time!
