Great to hear from you again, Jackson. I love keeping up with the news. And, re your food adventures... isn't it funny how we gag when trying something different from what we are used to? I'd eat crab but I'd be sick to the stomach at the thought of trying milk and blood.

I just read your article now and i couldn't help laughing at poor Jackson, brought up on meat, milk and blood having to be polite and each crabs and lobsters. Must have been an experience there. How is business now? You must be doing well.

Hi Jackson,

You must be really busy of late. Your blog seems to need some love lately. Kindly update on the masai mara migration for 2017. Someone told me that the wildebeest didn't go back last year although im sure mara cannot support such a large number year round. Are these rumours true?
