Didn't make it to Karekukari, but we tried. One of the rear tires shredded (now need two new tires, thought I could make them last another six months--I was wrong), and in Africa, you just don't travel into the bush with no spare, so they had to come back. Of course, when word got out that we were going, seven additional people showed up to ride out there. It would have put fourteen people in a seven passenger vehicle, but they saw no problem in that. I love this culture. Everything is possible in their minds. Wish we could share that hopeful attitude all the time. Here, not all trips make it to the destination, but we always try.
