... start tomorrow but looking forward to getting to Zanzibar now. Andrea got hold of me tonight, she has noticed that I can't take my eyes off Jess. Her lawyers eyes were spot on because I really can't. Everything about her interests me, apart from the fact that she is the prettiest girl I've ever seen, she is just so nice and caring, she goes crazy for cats even the scrawny ones, this bodes well for me hopefully if she likes the dodgier looking things in ...

We made our way into the quarters that slaves were kept in the night before being sold ...
... in for the photo shoot when we show up. The second half of this trip was at the Serengeti National Park where we saw even more lions and followed a group of 8 young adult lions, both males and females. It was incredible getting to be so close to that many lions, but I think the best part of the safari was watching the quintessential sunset over the dusty African safari.
