Jul 10, 2014 - Ending our first day at Planet Lodge

Our first full day at Planet Lodge was a wonderfully relaxing day! Our group went into town to obtain local currenty -- the shilling, which is 1.6 to our $1.00. So, 10,000 shillings would be approximately $6.25 in US Dollars. We went to the local grocery to stock up on supplies -- i.e. alcohol and snacks. Afterwards we were going to walk through the town, but our driver advised us not too, as he was concerned that the locals vendors were out numbering us and he felt that it wasn't too safe from pick-pockets, etc. I have to say the local...

Apr 11, 2014 - 4/11/14 Houston, Texas

Spent a wonderful Thursday evening at Charity's beautiful house having a girl's night. I met her friends and found every single one of them to be funny and friendly. We had a good time telling stories about being ripped off by plumbers and haunted houses. I even drank some Sweet Ass wine and was able to leave her home at midnight sober. I now have a new friend on FaceBook from that gathering... hope she can take the somewhat questionable discussions that always seem to happen on my page! (Not naming names Di and Ann Elida!!) LOL Picked up...
