18 days…

It is hard to believe there are only 18 days left before we leave. Still have a lot to get done but we have been working on it and  I am still dealing  with the crashed hard drive from a couple of days ago.

Today I found a car service to take us from West Palm to Miami International Airport, and notified the credit cards of the travel plans. Last thing we need is the fraud department shutting them down while we are out of the country because they couldn’t get us on the phone to verify the charges. It is a little more likely for us as there are still alerts on Nancy’s credit reports from when her purse was stolen in NY this summer.

So now onto some details for the trip. When we get to Nairobi, we will be spending the first 2 days at Giraffe Manor. This is a boutique hotel about 12 1/2 miles from the center of Nairobi, but it has its own resident herd of Rothschild Giraffe! It was built in the 1930’s. It is close to the Karen Blixen Museum, The David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and the Nairobi National Park, so there should be a lot of photographic opportunities as soon as I get there! This image is a couple of years old and is one of the few giraffe images I shot at Disney. I expect to fill that gap in my portfolio very soon.
