The walking Safari, it has to be said, could have been a bigger success. We walked 30km through Mkomazi National Park, and the scenery was stunning, but because it was wet season the animals were all spread out, and the grass was long, so we saw 2 hartebeest, 2 dung beetles, 2 tortoises, a dik dik, a crab, tonnes of birds (including a hornbill like Zazu in the lion king), and the usual hordes of lizards. We saw evidence of most of the major animals (one of the dung beetles was clearing up lion poo), but unfortunately not the animals themselves.
I'm finally in Bangkok, but I had a complete nightmare of a journey here. When I turned up at Kili airport I was told that my flight onto BKK had been cancelled, and that when I got to Nairobi I'd be put in a hotel and given a flight the next day. The hotel they put me up in was so nice, it had a huge double bed with rose petals scattered across it, hot showers and a big swimming pool. The airline had told me to get to the airport for 10 the next morning, so that I could see if there were any flights out that lunch time (there weren't), so I had a 12 hour wait in Nairobi airport, and it has to be said there are more exciting places in the world... The airline was supposed to find my bag and put it on the plane to BKK with me, but they couldn't find it, and kept telling me that maybe they'd left it in Tanzania by mistake, so I was a bit stressed about that, until I managed to persuade them to let me look for my own bag, lo and behold it was the first one I came accross, how it took them 6 hours of searching and they still managed to miss my bright blue rucksack is a complete mystery though
Tomorrow I'll be headed out to Ko Chang for some genera beach related merriment, but before then I really need to learn some thai, as I keep addressing people in swahili, which just leaves everyone slightly confused.
