The Majic Hour



March is right around the corner....the month St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland, the month known for the "wearing of the green", and this
year, the month we set off for South Africa! It will be green and lush In that part of the world, end of summer, so we are right on track as far as "green" is concerned. Much research has been done for this trip, the itinerary is set, we have had our vaccinations for yellow fever, hepatitis A, typhoid fever....(sounds like fun, doesn't it?!)...better safe than sorry! The flight from JFK to Johannesburg is 15 hours with another 2 hour flight to Cape Town from there. Review after review has been read... and caution heeded. Our belongings have been divided into two suitcases. Our carry-ons contain all the comforts we could possibly need...travel pillow, inflatable neck pillow, eye mask, ear plugs, headphones, inflatable footpillow, iPad..loaded with podcasts, books, music, meditation apps, snacks, slippers, hydrating face cream, etc. etc. ( totaling 18 lbs each...maybe less). We begin our dose of anti- malaria meds on Sunday... "No pain, no gain!"....the safaris, the animals, food, scenery, people and culture will be the great reward! Oh, and let us not forget the wine! This shutterbug will be taking advantage of every photo opportunity that comes her way! The countdown has begun. Forward...March! Stay tuned.
