This morning I took my Dad to the airport. This time he’s on his way to Tanzania. What a wonderful life, although he works very hard when he’s there! He’s been to Angola, Liberia, Sierra leone and everytime I wish I could climb in his suitcase and go with! I want to go live with them at the concession in the bush, I reallly do! Since I can remember he’s been working in the diamond industry, but in Tanzania they focus more on gold mining. And NO, he had nothing to do with the blooddiamonds! Have you seen that movie with Leonardo Di Caprio (Trying to speak with a South African accent)? A few of that movie scenes were filmed in Stellenbosch, like 20-30 kilometres from where I live. ANd also in the Waterfront, 30 km's to the otherside! :)
I’ve taken my dad to the airport like a million times and said goodbye like a zillion times before, but I cry E -V-E-R-Y time!!! :( Last year he also left a few days before Father’s Day.
He's flying to DAR ES SALAAM right this moment!
Tanzania is a tourist country. Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar, the Serengeti and a beautiful coastline!
I think I partially convinced him to buy me a planeticket to go visit him! Maybe that’s wishful thinking..we’ll have to see if that happens!!! I can just picture me running around in Africa taking pictures of everything and everyone!! I would really want to go to the neighbouring countries too..
