Lake Manyara Game Watching
I am alive & well. Saw lions & giraffes & elephants etc all day today - very wonderful safari. I camp in a tent tonight & then head to the bush where bushmen will hunt - no internet, no cell. So I will be cut off at least until Thursday. Am on VERY expensive & VERY slow internet, so photos will also have to wait until Thursday. Sorry!!!
Mto-Mbu is the name of the town where we camp. Mto-mbu is Swahili for Mosquito River, but it seems there are not that many mosquitos, even though we had rain most of the morning & early afternoon. I bought a giraffe mask carving from the man who was making them in camp. MUCH cheaper than at the stores in town. Also have an elephant bracelet he carved.
My arms were bruised from the standing through the roof, but worthwhile to see all the animals. Seeing the lions was a treat. The pictures barely show them at all.
