greystoke- a tribute to "spassvogel"

planned together and organized by irma we had wonderful days in Tanzania some weeks ago. the absolute height of our journey were the days with the chimps of Mahale. I wanted to wait for irmas return from Australia to show her my video and photos- she will never see it. Maybe some of you will miss her postings, I´m missing a marvelous friend- and I can´t imagine, what her husband and der mother will miss.
Of course I will go to Africa again (soon), but it will not be the same, without disussing with Irma about it.
For Irma

YES, Please let us know about Irma; she was very helpful to me when planning my trip via the forum and was an avid contributor. I am so sorry to hear this. My condolences also to her family and friends. This sounds sad.

Lovely tribute.

Please let us know what happened to Spassvogel. She posted last week on her way home.

I'd love to hear more about Greystroke when you feel you can write about it.

What a lovely tribute. And how very sad about Irma/SV (cannot recall her earlier screennames). Has/had she been ill?

Doni, would you consider posting this on the lounge? She would comment on various topics there as well.
