Day 2 of my safari. Spent the day at Ngorongoro Crater, the densest animal population on the planet. We saw cats - lions, cheetah, and a serval cat. We saw antelope. We saw zebra and wildebeests by the hundreds. Elephants. Black rhinos. Hippos. Birds, big and small. It was a good day!
I quickly discovered my favorite way of traveling - standing up in the back of our safari jeep, holding on, wind in my face. That way I can see in all directions. But it's not easy. We bounce along on wildly rough roads.
Days like this make me very glad that I have worked hard to keep my body strong. Solid legs and strong core muscles help me keep my balance no matter what the road is like. I am happy that I am strong enough to do what I want, when I want, without much thought about whether my body can handle it.
Today, I am grateful for my core because it has allowed me immeasurable pleasure.
