My Aunt Cher takes me flying!

This is our plane.

Cher is the pilot!

The cabin is tight and well suited for the extreme closeup.

back to Nairobi

Douglas deposits us safely in Nairobi.

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL stickers are a big hit! Men start to repeat it to passing women right away and the women blush and smile and everyone is smiling.

Douglas gave his a great spot in his van, just left of where the rearview mirror should be.

Safari is over...

Sopa Lodge, Masi Mara Kenya

Our accommodations were excellent! We slept in mosquito netting and drank by the pool. The lodge is located 206 km south of the Equator on the eastern boundary of the Masai Mara Game Reserve in southwestern Kenya. It is the best-known game area in East Africa, bordering the Serengeti National Park.

Then we pulled some Frenchies out of a hole.

Good Driving

Douglas is an excellent driver. The drive to Masi Mara is long and beautiful and dusty. Flat tyres are common and many vehicles break down.

On the Road to Masi Mara

Douglas, our driver, picks us up in Nairobi, we drove six hours slightly north and mostly west on a long and winding "road".

You are Beautiful, Amsterdam

I find a nice mailbox for my YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL sticker and place it right by the keyhole. This way, anyone who opens the box will feel like I am talking right to them. Jessica is kind enough to point it out to us, below.

We walk a few meters down and I turn around to shoot the box from far away to " give it some context". At that moment the owner of that same box is putting his key in the lock and pausing...
