Memories of Africa
By Smithsonian Travelers Carolyn and Bob Volk
Here’s to fellow Smithsonians, traveling
with us to seek
adventure and beauty in deepest Afrique!
We’ve had wonderful company, great food
surroundings of elegance kept us all
in the pink.
Our Thornybush safari brought us wildlife
animals, birds, sunsets and night skies
all beyond compare.
Here’s to glamorous Inga, so smart, fun
as organizer-in-chief she is quite irreplaceable!
And our delightful Robyn, whose lectures
kept us in tune
with the foibles of clever lions and the
May you travel and roam free like our
animal friends –
And let’s hope that our travel paths
will cross again!
