Mother Cheetah and Three Cubs

On an early morning game ride in the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania we happened upon a rare sighting of a mother cheetah and her three cubs. The mother could not make the cubs stay in a tree so she could hunt for food. They wanted to go with her. Finally they all stayed together and played. You’ll notice that the animals in the background are not concerned about the presence of the cheetah. The reason for this is that they know she is only hunting for small animals to feed her cubs, not large ones.

Jamie Ross Interview

I was honored to be interviewed, recently, by Maplewood maven, Jamie Ross, who runs the local Maplewood online website, a great service to the community. We sat down for two sessions, talking about my book, Madam, Have You Ever Really Been Happy?, my philosophy of travel, and some of my recent trips.

HERE and HERE are links to the interview!

Singing Porters on Mt. Kilimanjaro

I finally taught myself how to upload videos to YouTube. You may notice by the beginning remarks that I was quite a neophyte as I attempted to tape the porters singing and dancing at Lava Tower Camp on Mt. Kilimanjaro. The quality is vastly inferior to the original, due to the size that YouTube can handle, but the spirit of the song is there. Hope you like it.
