He said, She Said
“I’ve got some bad news. Instead of Giza, you said we were in Gaza.” -Ryan spell checking Blakely’s post.
“I wish the sun would go down so we can go to sleep.” -Ryan. Our habits have changed a bit. We see LOTS of sunrises.
At a bus station before dawn. A young ragamuffin boy with a wheelbarrow was helping us with our bags. He could barely speak English but, before we entered the chaos of the station, he turned and sternly told us: “Don’t trust anyone!”
Same bus station. The bus driver was cutting a rope with a rock. Ryan asked if he wanted a knife and the bus driver replied good naturally: “Oh no. We don’t allow knives in the bus station or we’d all kill each other!”
“Whatever you do, don’t run.” -Our walking safari guide’s advice if we encountered a lion or leopard.
“There’s more to see than can ever be seen. More to do than can ever be done.” -Circle of Life lyrics and perfect description of our time in Africa.
“This face is too fat to be you.” -Storekeeper to Ryan when she checked his ID.
“Travelers, in general, are horrendous.” -Blakely in a dark moment.
“Whoa!” -Us 10x per day.
