The first few days of an international trip are always hard because your body is adjusting to a time difference. South Africa is 8 hours ahead of Virginia. They do not have a Daylight Savings Time like we do in the USA, but keep the same time all year long.
The first few days I was here I kept feeling dizzy and thought it was jet lag. I would try to sit and read a book and when I felt dizzy I would lie down in bed until the dizzy feeling went away. Then I found out that we are 4,500 feet above sea level. That is called the altitude. Maybe that is the real reason I was feeling so dizzy. After the first two days I developed a regular night time sleep schedule and was not feeling so light headed anymore.
Tomorrow we leave Kruger National Park for the trip back to the airport. I am sad to go because this has truly been the trip of a lifetime. I look forward to continuing with the blog and telling you all about the trip and the amazing wild animals I have seen.
