I’m packing my bag this morning. It’s time for the come down.
For the last couple of days I have been assisting @TAGdaren with his non-profit organisation TAG international development, (www.TagDevelopment.org) you may have seen the hash tag #tagid floating around.
Darren has been doing what he does best. Don’t ask me exactly what it is. It involves getting saluted at, wearing smart clothes and negotiating with people doing some really exciting, interesting and worthwhile work.
For our time here we have been looked after by the Kenyan Wildlife Service. I have been grabbing photos, videos and a little audio in what is really a reccy for bigger projects to come.
It has been a phenomenal experience. My head is still trying to process all I have seen and I know Daren feels the same awe and excitement for the work the KWS are doing here and the ways in which his company can assist them in better protecting the national park and it’s animals.
I will try to summarise better when plugged into a faster Internet connection. In the last few days here our lifeline to the web has been a sim kindly sponsored by Vodafone plugged into a Novatel Wireless MiFi. We have kept this going in the long periods of time without mains power with A Mini Gorilla from Power Traveller.
It’s been an interesting experiment working solely from the iPad. It’s possible but I find myself limited in many ways. Enough ways for me to want to come back with a small MacBook pro.
Keep your eyes peeled for more content going out through either @tagdaren or the @documentally twitter accounts and please be sure to bookmark www.tag.posterous.comif you want to know more about our work here in Kenya with the Kenyan Wildlife Service and how you may be able to get involved.
I’ll certainly to be sad to be leaving the national park today, but at the same time looking forward to getting back to family and collating all the images and video I’ve gathered.
Daren will be staying on another night. He has a meeting lined up with an Ambassador.
As you do.
