      This lodge provided perhaps our top experience in terms of accommodations during this tour. The watering hole just across from the tents, and the abundant wildlife, make it an exciting place to stay. Many of us wondered why go out on safari at all? Just let the animals come to us, as we sit and enjoy coffee and drinks at the bar. Our favorite moment was the parade of 16 elephants of all ages, followed closely by the sight of tall giraffe spreading their front legs far enough (the splits) in order to get their long necks down low enough to take a drink!

      Owen woke me at 4:30 am. It was quite a noisy night--baboons barking at about 3:30 and something unidentified making a lot of noise very near our tent at 4:00. Owen and I left shortly before 6:00 am to watch the sunrise over the waterhole on a crisp and clear morning. Giraffe, Ibis, cranes and the ever present waterbuck were at the watering hole, …

      Left the Mountain Lodge at 9:00 am. We stopped at the equator where the Coriolis effect was demonstrated with a bucket, a home-made funnel and a match stuck. Water drained with a clockwise motion in the Northern hemisphere, and a counter clockwise motion in the Southern. You only had to move about 40 feet to see the effect. Directly in the equator …

      Today is my first day off since my last entry. Work has been really full on, what with moving from LAB(E) back to NSG. It's amazing what you find when you go through the stuff that your predecessor has left behind and find out that they have been bluffing it for the last month! Never mind just more to get my teeth into. Today I think I will start on my tan as it's a lovely morning the sun is out and the view from my window this morning is breath taking (see ...

      ... border but we were still not out of the danger zone so mini buses picked us up and took us to a prison canteen where we waited for news on the truck. We ended up camping in the town while Mat and Ellen worked through the night. We made it into Ethiopia a day late but shappy the truck was fixed and that we weren't on a bus. As I post this I have been in Ethiopia a week and am loving it! Internet is beyond scarce but hopefully a post should be up in about a week about adventures in the Omo ...

      ... far the worst in this regard, with ultra-luxurious living intermingled with abject poverty. One of the reactions to poverty abroad is to compare it to poverty at home, usually with the comment that our poor don't know what poverty is, not a particularly kind remark although it is something I have thought myself. There is such a thing as relative poverty (I know, I'm just a bleeding heart liberal). It would be hard to imagine ...
