Back to Blogging

I don’t know why I haven’t been blogging much, it’s not like I don’t have the free time. I have a beautiful tent in the Chyulu Hills of Kenya equipped with a beautiful log desk and yet I haven’t sat down an done my blogging in quite some time.

Commute to the Kiwanja (Airstrip)

I have been waiting many years to make this dream a reality and it’s finally here.  I am living in the wild bush of Kenya, one hundred miles Southeast of Nairobi, in Hemmingway’s green hills of Africa, the Chyulu Hills.  5 years ago I visited Campi Ya Kanzi for the first time and I fell head over heals for the place and the people.  I...
