I have made many friends in the 8 months I've been a member of Africam, and gotten very close to a few of you, but my newest friend has got to be the most awesome of all.
I PM'd Iceage about 3 weeks ago because he was new and called a jackal a "lovely dog"... I didn't know he was kidding, so I very briefly told him that it was a jackal! That was the beginning! Since then there have been many emails and marathon phone calls from Holland, but here's the real amazing ( to me anyway ) part of our brand new FRIENDSHIP: My husband and I will be traveling to Amsterdam this coming week to take a river boat cruise to Budapest. Iceage, who lives 3 hours away, has offered with great enthusiasm, to drive to Amsterdam and be our personal tour guide for the one full day we have in his beautiful city!
This, to me is a beautiful thing for anyone to do, let alone someone I've "known" for such a short time. It restores my sometimes faltering faith in mankind!
Thank you Iceage! And thank you, Africam for the good things I've gotten from being a member.
