My recent trip to Africa was one of the great trips of my life. Seeing animals in their natural habitat is a concept that sticks in your brain for a long time. There are animals who have evolved there over many millions of years, adapted to their environments, are not bound by cages or bars, and have learned to live with each other. It's possible to see how humankind evolved from this setting, but it's almost impossible to imagine the scale of time required to do so. The trip was full of amazing surprises, one after another.

Victoria Falls

We have a picture in our dining room by a New Mexico photographer who photographed Victoria Falls from one particular angle making it look like a B&W Chinese ink painting. Our task was to find that spot and angle, which we did. Victoria Falls are probably a mile long or more. This photo was taken a quarter mile away. We were struck by their power and beauty, imagining not only the struggles of overland adventurers, but what they felt when they arrived at this scene 140 years ago!
