Dear Claude,
The first half of this year has really felt like a roller coaster to me. So many ups and downs, twists and turns! And did anyone else's inbox go from zero to a thousand in a matter of weeks?
Meanwhile, I'm bracing for my first summer in Dallas. As our local weather man warned, get ready for "the gates of hell to open." I can't wait to see my A/C bill . . .
I really love this month's newsletter. Why should you visit Uganda? What makes the Zambezi River so special? How can you become the next Jane Goodall? You'll find the answers to these burning questions in our blogs below.
As always, we’re happy to assist with anything you need! If you'd like to catch up book a virtual appointment with us above.
