Good morning my J & K friends!

I am here in Puyallup, WA! It's only 5am here, but my body knows it's really 8am! Of course, I will probably be in bed at 8pm tonight!!


Brandi - I'm so happy to hear that your issue has a happy ending!


Wendy - Can't wait for the good news!

They could not believe his progress since his month with them in February-March 2011. What a nice evening we had!

My handsome, distinguished husband:

Elin - I am so glad to hear you and Bob had a wonderful day! I can picture there wasn't a dry eye in the house! You're absolutely right -- Bob looks so handsome and distinguished.

Elin,

Bob looks, happy, healthy, and very handsome. I am so glad he was able to go back and be an inspiration to all.

Thanks for sharing the picture and the experience.

I just heard from Ann (Angel16), who is currently at the Beach Club. Her DH caught some kind of stomach bug. After a visit to a doctor, he is resting.

I'm a little sad because we were going to get together during their trip.

Called this morning and we couldn't get all the nights we wanted at Jambo House. So we're booked Nov 7-10 Arusha view. Nov 10-12 we're booked Kidani Studio Standard View. This is going to be a girl's trip with my sister.

I've never thought about Kidani before. I knew it was there but didn't think I would ever rent DVC. Are there good public viewing areas in Kidani? Are some standard locations better than others?

...perhaps you could still have an informal get-together at one of the lounges (or eateries) at BC.... just a thought....

Thank you so much for your detailed information!!! We can't wait to go! AKL is so exotic. We never stayed CL level here before, so it will certainly be a treat!
You're welcome. I stayed CL two weeks ago and I'm in the beginning of a TR, I have pictures over there if you'd like to check them out. There's a link in my signature.

It really is a treat, you're going to have a fabulous time!

I'm getting ready to call to change my AoA reservation to AKL. We want the best possible Savannah views. If I request just a "Savannah" view, what is the possibility it would overlook Arusha?

If I request close to the lobby and pay for an Arusha view, will we get lots of animals? Or do we need to be out towards the ends of the trails?

Thanks
You definitely don't need to be near the ends of the trails to see lots of animals. They roam wherever they want, within their areas, so anywhere on Arusha has the same chance of seeing the animals.

I'm sorry you weren't able to get all nights in the same place. I don't know much about Kidani, but they do have a big viewing area off the lobby just like Jambo House. I'm sure they would have the viewing areas along the corridors as well. Lots of people on here have stayed at Kidani so hopefully they'll chime in.

Oh no! I hope he's fully recovered by the time the surprise trip happens.

You can't still get together?
