Message from Donna a while backGood to hear from you but enough with the food stuff . . . and more about you and Bryan.

Donna always makes me laugh.
I saved one of Donna’s emails from a few years back about a fabulous trip that she and Jack took.  No time wasted on food in it J

Just got back.  Left Zimbabwe at 10 am on Saturday and got home at 7 pm....went right to bed.  It was the most amazing trip from London England thru to Zimbabwe.  Did a wine tour of Stellenbosch and tasted Pinotage for the first time....and really really liked it! Our first Game Drive at Sabi Sands we saw the Big Five....up close and personal.  Were treated like kings for four days.  Had our own outdoor pool, outdoor shower and huge soaking tube that they filled every evening we came back from the late drive...with marvelous sherry poured and candles lit.  The last day a huge bull elephant came to visit while we were soaking in the pool.
Cape Town is a most beautiful city and Cape Hope is almost spiritual.  Saw the whales from our balcony in Hermanus and Zip Lined in the Tsitsikamma Mountains outside of Plettenberg.  Danced with school kids in Namibia and with the Zulus in Botswana.  Got chased by hippos on the Chobe River and did a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River....  This was an adventure and an education!


I have no doubt that  Donna, is going to have fun today.  It’s her birthday and everyone around her is going to have fun, too!
