I’m BACK, y’all!!!

After three weeks spent in the African wilderness (and I don’t think you fully appreciate how literally I mean that statement), I am back where I belong! (And we didn’t get robbed while we were gone, so that’s always good!)

2012 Africa Trip — Coming Home — Unshaven Case

Our hero after a few weeks abroad, where different voltages can make using electric clippers a BAD IDEA.

It’ll take some time to get all my stories out about our trip to Tanzania, but to give you a quick synopsis of what went down, I:

  • managed to painstakingly summit Mt. Kilimanjaro
  • got some great wildlife shots while on safari in the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater
  • experienced not-quite-so-subtle racism from some of the locals
  • got a little taste of Tanzanian culture; some great… some not as much
  • have a wealth of bags and clothes that smell like I’ve spent the last couple of weeks without any decent shower facilities (some might argue it makes me smell like a man, but I’d just say it smells like I have some serious laundry to do!)

For now, though, it’s all about unpacking, going through mail (of both the snail and electronic varieties) and getting back into the swing of things!

Viva la Toronto — it’s great to be back!

    • Heh. I’d originally had a picture I was going to post with the fro, but I mucked around with it too much and needed to go with this instead. I just yanked it off of the card again, and will probably use it when I get to that point in the long, long story that was Kili.

      It won’t be lost to the ages, I promise 🙂

    • I look forward to it, man. Been trying to find the time to get the next episode out, but it might wind up being a weekend mission 🙂 I hope you enjoy the mix of things I’ve been putting out — the rhyme and reason of everything is definitely absent right now, and I LOVE IT.
