Gorillas on 60 minutes
Did anyone catch tell 60 Minutes segment on the Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda last night?
The hotel Tauck stays in was on. The Ellen Degeneres center was well on its way to being built….it was just a fenced off piece of land when we were there two years ago. The farmland you have to traverse to get to the forest on the trek was seen, as was one of the forest trails through bamboo, ferns, stinging nettles etc….and of course the gorillas. Lesley Stahl looked a bit out of breath, as I was because of the altitude. Her group certainly were not moving at the fast pace that we did. As you could see, you get very near the gorillas, so near, you sometimes have to move out of their way as they move in your direction. An unforgettable experience! This was our last pre Covid tour, I can’t believe it is almost two years ago!
