Am back...

Am back from what I can perhaps best describe as one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life time!

Plenty of time to connect even more with Ashes - my daughter is really cool if I say so myself; was fun to do this with her. Plenty of time to reconnect with myself. I needed that! Too many decisions to make lately about life and everything that comes with it. Was good to 'be away' physically and attempt to be so mentally as well. Though one never really gets away fully mentally do they? Plenty of pictures and of course plenty of posts - still yet to be downloaded and still yet to be written.
In a nutshell:
  • did see the big five! Yes all of them - lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, and rhino. Seriously cool!
  • did get 'attacked' and my banana stolen by a damn monkey! Physical assault in the backseat of our car - no wasn't hurt but freaked out of course!
  • slept in a luxury tent (more decked out than my house) in the middle of the Masaai Mara
  • saw a 'first jump' by zebras and wildebeests crossing the Mara River
Just realized that Wednesday will be a month since I left Ghana! Since then it feels that I have been constantly traveling for work - Ethiopia, Rwanda and Kenya.Will be in Nairobi for the next couple of days and then home to Ghana! Am so looking forward to that. Good times and fun aside looking forward to sleeping again in my own bed, with my own pillow and seeing Nico (our dog). And of course catching up with my friends over a super cold Star!

It appears to me that you really needed the break!
I guess there is no better place to chill than in an eden-like location like Masai Mara.
Hope that the many decisions about life you will be making proceed as seamlessly as possible.
Good luck.

Hi Posekyere, did need it and am really feeling that much better for it.
Hope you are good too!
