life list: trip to Kenya

one day I want to go to Kenya.
somewhere so different from anything that i've visited.

i want to feel the fierce African sun.
take shade under an acacia tree.
play with the kids, run through the tall grass.
listen to the stories.
the lilt of the local language.

i want to traipse along the tanzanian border.
tiptoeing close to lake victoria.
cross over and gaze at mt. kilimanjaro.

the wildlife.
life in the bush.
the mosquitoes bigger and fiercer than small animals.
i want to experience all that.

and, as an add-on to my trip,
i would consider myself so lucky to stop here

if i'm going to continue down this road of becoming a teacher,
i want to see kids all over the world.
i'd love to visit schools in all different countries.
spend time in classrooms.
write on chalkboards deep in Africa.
talk with kids in Japan.
maybe in South America one day.

Here's the site for an organization that supports The Shepherd's Home.

one day hopefully i'll be lucky enough to visit.

just an ordinary wednesday morning of daydreaming!

have you started your life list yet?

i love early morning daydreaming! My life list contains all the museums I want to visit around the world: the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin, the Guggenheim in Bilbao, the Ashmolean at Oxford, the Vatican museums.... and on, and on :)

food for thought.
