African adventure ending

Here we are at the end of our African adventure and what a wonderful trip it was.  We've seen beautiful scenery and vast inequality  in Capetown, with great food, music and wine.  We saw the big five and many more wondrous creatures and landscape on our safari in Tanzania, along with some (scary) but exciting camping experiences and tribal villages.  We swam the crystal clear waters with sharks and sea turtles and sting rays of Zanzibar and got lost in the maze of Stonetown.  We were met by welcome people and  maybe a few angry lions.  We are not blind to the fact that we are extremely fortunate that we were able to do this and will forever be grateful and we appreciated every second of it.    You might ask, what will you do after your african vacation?  Well we're going to go to Disneyland!  No seriously, we really are.  Its taking us five flights and 36 hours of travel to get there, but we'll soon join a Grieci family vacation (and I'm trying to convince Tyler to visit animal kingdom).  Thanks for following everyone!  I've compiled some tid bits below

Swahili words we have learned (and Tyler has mostly used and developed an accent for as well)
Jambo - hello
Assante - Thank you
Karibu - welcome
Pole pole - slowly slowly 
Hakuna matata - no worries (ok we already knew that one but they really
do say it all the time)
Sawa Sawa - ok ok
Twende - Go
Simba - Lion
Lalasallama - Goodnight

Favourite animal
Tyler's - Baboon
Tanya's - Flamingo

Animal Tyler is most similar too - hyena (for the loud laugh) vs cheetah (skinnh, speed and strength )

Animal Tanya is most similar too - rhino (Tyler says because I am rare)

Scariest moment - Lion's outside our tent

Worst meal - unknown meat lard sandwiches
