I woke up this morning and sat in the lounge while everyone was still sleeping I was flipping through the TV channels and I found my all time favorite movie was showing – Out of Africa.
It’s the most perfect love story, two of my favorite actors, the absolutely most awesome breathtaking views of Kenya and *sigh* the music alone is enough to make you fall in love and cry at the same time.
So my breakfast was in front of the TV watching this old movie, listening to the music, her voice and story just made me think of my very own Out of Africa Story. I have not farmed yet and I so wish I could start my story with the famous line…“I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills”
I can’t do that, but I can start it with “My heart belongs in Africa”
Born in Africa (Angola) the rivers that give water and life to this land flow through my veins too, the sound of the African drums beat in my heart and the red sand of our ground is the color of my blood. The story of how both my grandparents arrived in Angola is a long and old story that I will share one day. Today I want to share photographs of my African Story. This is just one chapter of that story for I have millions of photos, slides, videos and memories engraved in my heart of this beautiful land.
This is my Out of Africa Story …
