"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." (Mark Twain : The Innocents Abroad, 1869)

Continued interest

Many thanks to all of you from all over the world that continue to follow my blog.

As a result of a number of factors, I had to return to the UK earlier that I had originally hoped - that's life !  However, the Africa Bug is still creating an itch that must be scratched, so I'm already thinking "where next ?".

There are still bits of my Kenya experience that I want to add to the blog, so they will be trickling on to the site as the days go by.  I'll also be going back to add relevant photos to past postings now I have a decent internet connection !

I've had some "Comments" which you can see on the Blog and a number of direct e'mails - many thanks to you all & especially the occasional comments about my words & snaps.  It would be good to hear from even more of you.

Uploading all the pictures to Flickr takes too long as you can only do it a few at a time.  So, being lazy, I've put them all on Facebook which allows you to load them all in one go.

Even if you aren't on Facebook, you can see them if you click here.
