Spectacular

This is Africa
That is so dramatic and beautiful! I don't have an issue with heights, but would have struggled with that small metal ladder for sure. Loving your trip, and definitely feeling it :)

This is Africa
This phrase always reminds me of the speech Desmond Tutu gave during the FIFA World Championship in 2010. It was such a sweet speech and always put a smile on my face.
