Dreaming of Africa
I am married, a lifelong musician, somewhat competent photographer, and world traveler. Having been around for over 60 years, I have lots of "stuff" floating around inside my head that is screaming to get out.

Less than 64 hours

Tricia and I are getting excited! Friday we board the plane for our 2009 African Adventure. We have both been packing and repacking our checked and carry-on luggage, making sure we have everything we need. After all my advance work, I am sure I'll still forget something, hopefully it won't be too important.

The last couple of days before a big adventure are always torture for me. My mind races through countless checklists, and I wonder what our trip will bring. This time I add driving on the opposite side of the road to what we Americans are accustomed to. Should be an interesting trip, and hopefully a short learning curve. I hope that driving a right hand drive postal vehicle for 12 years will help me with the adjustment.

We will keep you informed is possible, and hope to bring photos and a diary of our trip to the blog.

Peace to all,

Tricia and Norm
