    Bless your heart H. Myles!
    Here's hoping for no more hiccups.

      Emirates has done a great job for us through all this misadventure, just as they have done in the past. A first class airline.

          On the way to Africa we were laid over eleven hours in Heathrow. During the long flight across the pond I took a pill for restless leg syndrome which acts up in pressure changes. Left me a bit rummy when we got to the airport. I guess I slept through most of the layover.

          Safe trip and stay in touch when you can. I'm sure they'll have wifi at your tent camp. Wish I was going with you. Can't wait to get back there.

            For a long time, to Africa, oh, I wouldn’t dare to do that. I wish you good luck and that there are no bad moments.

            I advise you to play it safe with weapons otherwise there may be problems.

              Don't worry about Happy. He's been handling weapons for at least seventy years and I think he told us once he's been to Africa hunting something like fifty times. If he was a different colour he'd probably be president of some country over there by now.

                    After the first day I knew I would have to go back. Sadly, it looks like my hunting partner has probably put in his last trip. Nothing left for him to shoot over there.
