One of Two: Meet Jami
First blog entry: I am new at this and am frankly very nervous. I am told that this blogging thing gets easier with time. Well, I am sure that you…out there…will let me know either way. Yikes! But thanks in advance….
I am one of two bloggers on this site. You will meet my husband, Theo Allofs (a German who by the way has THEE driest sense of humor – be warned). We have been told that we need to create a blog because apparently we have a few good stories to tell here and there – from our crazy lives!
When Theo finally works up his courage to write on here, please insert heavy German accent. I, on the other hand, am good ole’ American. Together, I suspect we will make for some interesting reading (hopefully).
We are professional nature photographers. We travel all over this amazing planet with hopes of making some small difference – albeit insignificant. We keep trying. Hopefully our readers (if we ever get one), will let us know.
On that note, my first photo post: A pic of me playing around with the most adorable orphaned elephant calf (named Lasayen) at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, Kenya. I am a HUGE fan of the Sheldrick Trust – every dollar spent on fostering and adopting these calves (orphaned as a result of poaching for ivory) is absolutely well spent. It takes USD $900.00 per month to feed and care for each individual calf. When you are there, you can see money well spent. Check out their website: https://www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/asp/orphans.asp.
If anyone out there has been to the Center during a visit to Nairobi, I would love to hear what you thought of it!
If Pete is as funny as Theo you should bring him in the Mara!!!
He is funny! You will really like him! I am sure that one day he will come to Kenya.
