I am in South Africa. It is nearly 7 in the morning, local time. Rand is breathing softly in the bed, and outside the winds are so strong, they are shaking our hotel room window.
Yesterday, I went on safari. I giggled, and it startled an elephant.
I’m going to say that again, because it might be one of the greatest sentences of my life: I giggled, and IT STARTLED AN ELEPHANT.
There is a lot going on this week. We’re going to hike and kayak and explore and haggle and shop and eat candy bars that aren’t available in the states. But, sadly, there will not be a lot of blogging going on while I’m here (there will be a few Milwaukee posts going up sporadically, when I have a few moments and an internet connection).
I’m sorry. BUT THERE ARE PENGUINS. I can’t sit in front of my laptop while there are penguins walking around.
I promise, I’ll tell you all about it when I get home. If you can’t wait that long for a fix, I will kindly direct you to the archives. There are three years of posts to meander through, if you haven’t already done so (but be warned: it takes me a few months of blogging before I hit my stride).
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go hug a penguin. Not sure if that’s allowed, or what. But I’m gonna do it.
See you next week.
