Nay, more like a generic party animal.

Thanks, I was trying to figure out who it reminded me of, and Katie Couric was the one.

Nice pictures. The scenes remind me of the movie "The Gods Must be Crazy".

For me the African Wild Dogs were the clincher........I'd previously been, (with my late wife), to Africa a few times........RSA, Tanzania, Kenya, Senegal and The Gambia, but never got to see them.

At one camp in Botswana we spent most of our 3 days there bouncing along behind the pack, (and being totally ignored by them), as they hunted. Superb!

Hope I'm not hijacking the thread, but here's a link to a slideshow we compiled:

https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=0eaa3...6&sc=documents

Select 'Start slide show' - for full screen.....click to advance.

The pics are in semi-random order....(okay, okay, I was too damned lazy to sort 'em.)

Wonderful photos, Nemo, both the old and the new!

I grew up within 6 miles of the Blarney Stone.

Having been, as we called it, "Third World'd Out" for a while, my late wife & I took an R&R from Riyadh to Ireland.......after the almost perpetual beige of Saudi our eyes literally hurt from the green of Eire......enjoyed it immensely.
