One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Traveled by camel a week through the Sahara while camping with Berbers, Racing down sand dunes in total darkness on an Arabian stallion next to the Great Pyrimid. Listened to the evening call to prayer from a feluca sailing down the Nile River. Hunted Kudu in the bush of the Eastern Cape in South Africa. Rode a mokoro between the heads of hippos in the Okavongo Delta. Listened to the grunts of lions while sleeping in the open while on Safari in Botswana.
