When Pearl grew up in Hilo, Mauna Kea could be seen from her home. The volcano was especially awesome during the winter months when covered with snow. If there was anywhere Pearl wanted to visit, but I did not, it was Africa, with Mount Kilimanjaro being her link to Mauna Kea. Plus, there was the movie King Solomon's Mines, which was one of her favorites. Thus, my initial thoughts to spread her ashes came from this specific feeling of guilt.
Thus, PA#10 was at the Nogorongoro Serena. The hotel reminded me of the Volcano House on the Big Island, where Pearl and I stayed several times. Both Nogorongoro and Halemaumau (PA#6) are craters. To the left is the view from my room where I placed PA#10.
Highlights of this portion of the tour were visits to a Maasai (formerly Masai) Village, Oldupai (formerly Olduvai) Gorge (here with Curator Samba Ikayo) and those animals (like giraffes).
Next week, PA#12: The Rest of My African Safari.
