Amazing Place
Finally had time to read your post... What an amazing place this must be to visit! Your photos have been so beautiful! I have spoken to a few people who have also been to Iceland, and they loved it too! Sorry to hear this is your last year in Essex County. Had I known you were taking your gardens down Marty, I would've given some of those beautiful flowers a new home! :)

Drive Toronto to Vancouver in one day?
Would love to have heard your answer! Looks amazing. Fabulous sunset

Wow!
What a far cry from Africa! love the photos. Sunset gorgeous. Most important question: did you renew your together contract and for how long?

What an amazing trip!! I'm finally getting caught up on your adventures and looking through all the pictures, thanks so much for sharing :) all the best, Sue

auld lang syne
Great record of your travels, Marty and Monica! Enjoyed them all. Freddy Mercury...yep...tragic ending..and there is also Ali Farka Toure from Mali...a favourite of ours. If you go back, Marty, will you look for your sandals? You must be home now and savouring each moment of your African adventure....

yes, life is good
you've had a great adventure, Monica and Marty. Consider yourselves lucky you were healthy enough to do it....no matter how uncomfortable or difficult it was at times. Wonder what your highlight is? Dian Fossey's gorillas? Enjoy what's left and embrace each new day as if it's your last. But you two know that anyway! Safe journey home!

More amazing facts
enjoyed these writings and photos, guys. Funny you should mention kite surfing. That's exactly what we're seeing here on the Gulf of Thailand. It does look hard and yes, you must need great upper body strength. Great adventure...continue to enjoy.

Congratulations!
Well, you two deserve a big pat on the back (and a few rounds of beer and red wine). That was one fantastic adventure and your photos, Monica, and your writing, Marty, put it all in perspective. We offer you our congratulations and best wishes. Enjoy your lavish beach destinations and we toast you here from Thailand for an amazing life changing journey. Hugs, Heather and Norm

Double wows!!
Love the elephant story about protecting the babies! Your bike ride sounds like a challenge! You two will never be the same...what an enriching experience!

wait! all is not lost!
I DO see you....and the other figure is....? Certainly gives a perspective to the waterfall.

Now I'm in trouble!
Marty---Now the 'squint and I appear' photo refuses to manifest itself! Suspect it's because our internet here in Thailand is very slow (and yet you guys were able to upload photos while in Africa!) Someday, when we meet again, bring the squint photo with you please!!!

learning a lot
Your trip is opening up eyes about Africa. Whoever researched this trip did a great job. Although I squinted when looking at that photo, Marty, you did not appear. And Monica, I'd be wanting upgrades by this time, too. What was that old ad line...."take me to the Hilton...?"
1st February 2018

I do exist!!! Just to the left of the waterfall.

Tent upgrade

Good read!
Almost feel like I'm there with you!

just a comment
Seems to me I saw a FedEx truck in one of your photos in Kampala--they actually are world-wide. Also seems to me you two are being adopted as a mama and a papa wherever you go. That's crazy, man! Continue your adventure. We wait for the next installment.

Wow!
How amazing!

Sobering histoty
The Poisonwood Bible is such a good read - by sheer coincidence I recommended it to our book group this evening. The film Hotel Rwanda gives some insight into that terrible and recent genocide. The Westvhas a lot to answer for

only one word
WOW!!!!!!
12th January 2018

What...no Stanley cranes?!
...And we had to look up dik-diks! Sounds fabulous guys!
12th January 2018

seize the toilet!
Thanks to you both for your great photos and tell-all writing. Enjoying your Safari from afar. Would not be thrilled with your Carpe Piem! Keep on recording your experiences and never leave the truck. (Despite your reluctance, Marty, the orphanage kids must have embraced you as warmly as Monica!)

Corruption
Until Africa cleans up its corruption act, it cannot be a main player in the global field. Of course its not the only country .... by any means, just so much more visible & accepted :-( Hope you have a wonderful safari. Stay safe
4th January 2018

Sobering
Quite a sobering read Marty. One has to be sceptical and it seems corruption/ lack of governance is just bubbling under all the good work and good work is often hiding behind 'religion'. I don't think I could have been quite so self controlled when the bill came! As you say it is the kids who are impacted. The work Monica has done I am sure is over and above what the average volunteer would do. Very well done

Arusha and Safari
Enjoy your time at the Masai camp and have fun on the safari, so much too see and spot. When you get back to BC we have to try to connect in person. Have a safe journey. Edith
3rd January 2018

wow!
I'd love to comment on each of your adventures in this blog, Marty, but fear there is not enough space. Your writing brings us right into your reality, good and bad, and at times we are happy you two are doing this and not us! Wonderful/terrible experiences! From Monica's illness to the corruption (yes, sadly, all over the world) to your Kilimanjaro trek and the orphanage. Well done, you two! By the time you are back on line (and we'll want to read all about the safari!), we should be in tame Thailand. Happy New Year guys!
