Inverted Isosceles Triangle
I didn't realize I'd be studying geometry when we went to Bermuda! Very cool. It looks like a great island.

Isosceles Triangles
When I saw the title of your comment, I thought you were going to pull out your protractor and tell me I had my angles wrong! As you’ve got to know me by now, you’ll realise I like to throw the odd light-hearted comment into my blogs. But you are right - Bermuda was a winner for all three generations. I’m currently researching Cuba as one of my options for my ‘off the beaten track’ trip for next year. So you may yet end up with an Aussie visitor before next year is out.

Muguruki means mad man in Kikuyu! when I was in Kenya some guys I knew used muguruki as a kind of affectionate insult. A bit like when my mum calls me a silly bugger!

Muguruki
Yeah, I guess similar to when we call someone a dopey bastard. When I read through some of your blogs, I can imagine how the name might have originated! I will look forward to your future travels.

Dorze
I'd intended to go to Dorze myself but a pesky dose of malaria got in the way. A happy looking bunch of people these Dorze I see. I quite like the look of Kotcho it looks a bit like my cooking!

Dorze
Hey Muguruki (that your real name?), I enjoyed reading your various blogs as well as your amusing intro description. You seem to be a bit more adventurous than me in these very interesting countries, but I suspect you are also a bit younger than me. Good luck with your future travels and I look forward to an interesting read.

Visiting Ethiopia
It sounds like you are having a fabulous trip. We hope to follow in your footsteps at some point.

Visiting Ethiopia
Thanks guys, it was a great trip. And since I've been back, I've revisited your blog on Sabi Sand, where of course there are many similarities with my safari experiences, but of course some differences too. I've appreciated your feedback to my various blogs and enjoyed the insightful little comments. This time next week, we shall be on our flight over to your neck of the woods, but unfortunately are not going to get the chance to get down to Florida, But we will get the chance to meet up one day, somewhere, some time.

You've made this piece of the world sound appealing. We will add it to our list.

They might be poor but they're happy

Priceless photo
Kids around the world are happy no matter their circumstances. They look joyful.

Except when they are born into money. A sad reflection of our western world!

Note the circular wedge necklace on this married Hamar woman

Ethiopia: Jumping with the Hamar
This is an exceptional shot Neil. I have posted some of your pics in TB's "Faces in Places" thread in the Photography Forum. Check out my blog of the above name for our 'same tribe...totally different experience.'

This is my 'almost adopted' Karo child

Ethiopia: The Karo...Handsome is an Art Form
We found the Karo the friendliest of the Omo Valley tribes. Seems with this little fella you know what I mean. Check out my blog of the above name of our bond with the Karo that made our day.

Ethiopian Tribes
Thanks David. Enjoyed your Omo Valley blogs - you have good memories given it was 8 years ago now. You clearly spent longer with each tribe than us and from the number of your pics, you might have invested more money in them too. Of our 6 tribe visits, the Hamar and Mursi were disappointing (especially when I check out yours and other people's blogs) but the other 4 were informative and friendly.

Birds of a Feather
I have posted some of your fabulous Birds of Africa in TB's "Birds of a Feather" thread in the Photography Forum. Check 'em out.

African Birds
Thanks David. I hope I managed to get most of the names correct. Each of the guides had a book with over 300 different birds seen in East Africa, so we spent quite some time matching, but its unlikely we got 100% success. Thanks for transferring to "Birds of a Feather". I never even knew this forum existed. Now I have a further excuse to while away a few more idle hours. I trust you are both well.
