I bless the rains down in Africa.

I am not on Facebook. I don't understand Twitter. This thing called Tumbler--it's a mystery to me. And don't ask me about So when I was asked about blogging my trip to East Africa by more than one person I decided, "What the hell, I guess I can give this inter-web communication thing a try." So Here it goes peeps. I cannot promise any enlightened thoughts that you might want to share globally on the aforementioned sites, but I can promise you this:

Toto was a great band from the 80s and for some reason they created a song about Africa. What makes this band ever more fantastic is that they were able to cram this line into their song marvelously:

As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become 

This trip to the lands of Eastern Africa is my spiritual quest (why here and not the woods of Northern Wisconsin is unbeknownst to me--would have been a hell of a lot cheaper that is for sure!) and so it only feels right to depart listening to the rhythms of my childhood. Without further ado I bring you Toto.

    Also love where the Toto video decided to freeze.
