Returning to Dublin today. Give me a day or 2 to settle down and I’ll tell you all about my trip. Des has promised to edit my videos with his professional slant. I am quite the dunce.

I want to show you the giraffes, zebras, pelicans and flamingoes and oh my God, you can’t believe how snobbish and vain the monkeys were.  And lions. This time round, by pure chance I saw packs of lions unfold in almost every safari park. It’s terribly hard to see these feline creatures. But you know, the Masai who own and live on the vast plains of the Tanzanian landscape – and I have stories to tell you of the Masai – believe that you’ve never really been to a safari unless you’ve seen a lion.
