The sun has set on our wonderful African adventure. The trip home was long; forty hours door to door. We very much appreciated our business class seats which made into comfortable beds. I watched a full season of “Nurse Jackie” which I had never seen, but am now hooked on.
We saw something incredible in the Johannesburg airport. One of the South African sports teams, haven’t figured out if it was football (soccer) or rughby, was returning home frome a victorious game. The airport has a hugh open, round, central hall, three stories high. Picture hugh balconies on three levels all the way around the building. As we looked up, thousands of people, at least it seemed like thousands, filled each level and they were cheering and chanting to welcome their team home. It was amazing. South Africans love their sports!
I am just starting the process of sorting through over 1800 photos. I did organize them into folders by location as we traveled, but now need to discard those that I don’t need to save, and choose the ones that I want to keep to remember the trip and share with others. It will take some time, but I will post again as I find more that I think you might enjoy.
Now on to planning the next trip. Our friends Ellen and Neal were in San Francisco from the east coast over the weekend and we met them yesterday and began making plans for our river cruise on the Rhine together next year, followed by a week or ten days in Israel. It was Fleet Week, and the Blue Angels were in town. I am grabbing every opportunity to to keep shooting pictures, so I can continue to improve my skills. I have become quite passionate about photography and sharing with the vast blogging community of amateur and professional photographers who I am learning from every day .
I will cherish my memories of the incredible animals and beautiful people who we met and learned about on our trip to Africa. Thank you to everyone who “traveled with us” by following this blog, and to those of you took the time to comment or “like” my posts. I love receiving your feedback!
