It may be a distant future retirement task to process through the 10,500 pictures I took on our Africa trip, but while I am still fresh, I wanted to post as many subjects as I can before I am back to my day job. Today…

Africa, why? I heard that from more than one person when asked about our next trip. The picture blog below answers that question. Our guide said that he had never seen elephants swimming. We watched two different packs swimming across the Chobe River, just 30…
