    Yes indeed! Israel got a gold medal in the men windsurfing race. That's 2 medals for a country of 5 millions. That would be equivalent to 120 per capita for the US, correct?

    And I thought it would be hakuna matata (no problem) for you...

    It's from the land that gave the world the word "safari" - "journey" in Swahili. Nothing special, just an attempt in early morning niceness...

    I have been working in Tansania, East Africa in a savannah research project for a total of seven months. Sigh.... now I made myself feel totally nostalgic about it, serves me right - I want to go back!!!

    ... and the Indian Ocean is kind of missing in Colorado, too . It is almost the only place in whole Africa where you have wildlife right at the beach.

    East Africa is sooo cool, the ultimate contrast to our life in the Western world. Even driving a car is a great adventure there, there is no way you can be sure to get were you want to. Distances are indicated in hours, not miles, and greatly depend on the weather, like form 4 hours in the dry season to 10 hours in the rainy season, or also three days if the bridge happens not to be there any more .

    I'm sure you can also make great sailing trips there, jpahl!

    I've never been to Africa, our kid has done enough travelling for my entire family. Are you a biologist?

    You have a kid?

    Indeed, I have studied biology (as mentioned before in this thread... ), though I don't work in that field presently, as mentioned in the "Treo Community -what do you do"-thread. My avatar is a DNA double helix (my research topic for quite a while), but I think I have mentioned this before, too.

    "Our kid" is my big brother. He was a zoologist but now works for IBM. Last biological trip he took was to Madagascar to research tortoise populations or some such, he got amoebic dysentry so couldn't complete the research. That's one reason I don't feel the need to emulate him - he's been all over the world and he's picked up all sorts of fancy diseases!

    Yes, research. When you read the page I have linked to, you will note that part of the new national park earlier belonged to Mkwaja ranch, which was owned by a Swiss company. There have been several research projects related to sustainable use of savannahs e.g. for cattle breeding (source of protein) on that ranch during the last decades, one of the very few places with such long data series in the tropics. If you have seen "Out of Africa", you know the landscape, it was the same there, only right at the shore of the Indian Ocean.

    I lived on that ranch together with three other students and we carried out several projects during five months as an "internship". Later, I returned with another colleague to evaluate the results during another two more months. I doubt the details of savannah ecology are of common interest, though.

    It also wasn't the type of research I was really into later, but a great way to travel. We even got some money for our work and used that to travel through Tansania and Kenya.

    Now regarding the helmet, you confuse me with PB, again!

    Regarding diseases: Apart from Malaria, none. But I got over that, too (wasn't too bad), so everything fine, thanks for asking. I can assure you my blood gets checked whenever I donate blood, and they've never complained so far.

    Well, I expect they get advertised that way, but I don't think anyone has done an empirical test!
