Out of Africa

We have been doing a little traveling these days…to far away exotic places, where colourful architecture surrounded us...



...and hot pink bougainvillea blooms cascade over walls and rooftops.



and where a welcome spot of shade greeted us.


We did some window shopping, too.


Then we parked our bicycles and took a break for lunch.






Time to "EAT."



The "Best Food in East Africa."







Sunlight and shadows dancing on the facades of ancient dwellings.










We went on an African safari...



...and saw a family of giraffes,



a baby elephant cooling herself off,



flamingos having a pool party...



...and some rhinos snoozing.



Somewhere around these giant boulders are the King and Queen of the desert.



Back to town for a cold drink.




We actually grabbed a few Coronas (in Africa..?). So refreshing and I don't even drink beer!



After our journey, we were back at our camp...




A wonderful place!

I loved tagging along on your safari-- and laughed my head off at the punch line!

I'm off to the Amalfi Coast and Naples next month (really)!

Probably won't Coronas, alas.

Hi Suzanne! It's okay if you can't show off your space yet. I would love it if you would still pop over and enjoy all the other creative participants.
BTW... your safari looked wonderful!

lol! I knew some of those places looked too familiar!
If I wasn't just there recently I would have completely believed it was really Africa.
Thanks, it was fun:)
