SAFARI TAKE 3

It’s me again, your favorite Georgian-gone-Tanzanian! This week we saw SO MANY THINGS. 1. We went on safari in Ngorongoro Crater. I got crazy close to some zebras and some hippos (which were actually quite intimidating).

Oh, was I not typing that into the Google search bar? Because if I’m being real y’all, I have no idea. I cut all my hair off, that’s something people do to get ready for a big trip, right? No? Just me? Right. Well, I’ve made approximately 237 lists of things to buy, remember, pack, … More WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU’RE LEAVING THE COUNTRY FOR 2 MONTHS
