One of the top things I wanted to do while I was in Sri Lanka was to see an elephant. I’d seen so many in zoos growing up, but I had never actually seen one in the wild. What better way to see one than on an early morning safari in Udawalawe National Park!
Cairo. She’s feisty, suffocating and exhausting but she’s also invigorating and inspiring. And sometimes it’s beyond me how she – with her layers and layers of people (22 million!!), buildings, cars and dust – manages to function. But she does and that’s half the beauty of the city. That it functions despite itself. From high atop the Saladin Citadel, the chaos of Cairo feels a bit more bearable. And it provides an expansive, and often hazy, view of the urban sprawl of the city.
