I arrived back home late Friday. To sum the trip up in one word “Amazing” would be appropriate. I will be posting more on what we did in Kenya and the experience including a couple crazy travel stories over the next couple of weeks. As I review and edit my 6000+ photos, I will be uploading some of them to my Flickr photostream http://www.flickr.com/photos/btl/.
I did get to see wild lions, cobra, scorpions, rhino, crocodile, zebra, warthogs, mongoose, a giraffe (and kissed it) and so much more but we were not on safari or at club med. We worked every day sun up to sun down carrying heavy gear in some really hot weather and rough terrain and traveled some of the worst roads imaginable to do research on aerial imagery capture with the remote operated Autodesk Octo-Copter.
Still battling some infections on my legs due to some thorn tree wounds and had two days of IV antibiotics to be safe that they did not get worse as well as dealing with the infamous jet-lag monster. So very glad to be home but I have so many stories to tell about amazing places and people.
Do I dare look in my email inbox…that’s more frightening than having a scorpion in your tent or a nile crocodile in the water you are swimming in.
