Kie's Article from the Bellingham Herald.
Here’s an update from Shawn that came in via e-mail:
Gibb’s Farm is incredibly thick and lush.
Hello again from Africa! Now that I have access to a computer, I can provide a few more details, but the Internet connection is horrible. I can't upload pictures right now and I have to be very brief, but I wanted to make a quick post anyway. We are having a fabulous time. After 26 hours of traveling, we were so happy to be at the Kilimanjaro Lodge, which was very lovely and had great food. The best part, of course, was having a real bed and not a cramped airplane seat. Wow, this keyboard is really horrible...did I mention I would have to be brief?
We saw our first elephant today (Wednesday). It was partially obscured by bushes, but no doubt it was an elephant. We took a two-hour walk accompanied by two locals, one gun bearing, into the jungle to the elephant cave, where they roll and dig for minerals. Incredible....saw so many plants that I grow indoors at home in Bellingham - orchids, philodendron, spider plants - all growing wild of course.
the interiors are incredibly comfortable.
