My first trip to Africa!!! People say Morocco doesn’t count (your thoughts please)
Anyway I’m looking forward to seeing the beauty of Nature, and I don’t mean just the stretch of a giraffe’s neck but also looking for the beauty of a kill, of a lion on the hunt of a hippo taking a bath, ect. It makes me think of the movie “Tree of Life” which I recommend, but be ready this movie’s not for one with a short attention span.
Someone said that it get’s really dusty on safari so bring cheap clothes; and so I had a field day at Zara’s and H&M’s. To tell the truth whilst shopping I felt a little bad wondering about who actually makes those clothes . I recently read a review of Lucy Siegle’s book called “To Die For” (on my reading list) where of the many things she talk’s about is child labour and fashion…
Where does my conscience lie, I wondered as I purchased cheap but stylish brown’s and beige’s and orange colored articles of clothing for my trip. Should this have been my last trip to H&M?
