    Africa’s Conservation Conundrum

    Sue.. just finished your book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It gave me some very clear ways to talk to non-hunters. Also, it looks like Rick and I may have been in Somalia at the same time.

    Hi everybody. Just a quick update. God bless you all for your prayers and support. Things are looking up. Walking and eating real food. "A pox on whoever invented the stuff Jello is made from.". May head home today! It will be great to sit on my own porch in peace and quiet.

    Prayer Request

    From your posts it is obvious that several of you have experience with this and that gives me great comfort and hope that this will be over soon enough. @Red Leg -- your observation is on target! The surgeon says 5 of my arteries are 80 to 100 percent blocked and that doesn't happen quickly.

    Victoria Falls visit on Zimbabwe or Zambia Side

    I saw the falls from the Zambia side in 2021 since the Zim border was closed to Botswana. It's impressive. Make sure to hike down as far as possible. I'm guessing you get just as wet from either side. I would have liked to drink at the Vic Falls Hotel for nostalgic/historical reasons...
