Lots of Pictures

I previously had almost no pictures on the site, now I have a lot. I hope that they are not too big and dont take forever to load, but enjoy. Most are from my recent trip to Serengeti/Ngorongoro Crater. Some from Zanzibar, which was over 2 months ago, and a few other assorted photos. Hope you find these pictures as exciting and as fun as I had when I was experiencing them. Also, my malaria is not so bad now, my ear hurts. But the medicine helps and I have such a strong will power that even Malaria cannot stop me...ahaha. Ive just laid in bed for a few days.

Thanksgiving:
Had a great Thanksgiving meal on Thursday evening. My first very international Thanksgiving. Maybe 15 Americans, some Norwegians, 10 Tanzanians, and a wacky Canadian who obviously hates my freedom. It was a lot of fun, had spaghetti, some chicken, macaroni, mashed potatoes. All in all a pretty solid Thanksgiving meal, and almost certainly the only Thanksgiving I will have had in Tanzania, with Malaria, on a day that I took a bucket bath. Haha, have a nice weekend and Go Gators
