Hi Warren,

We are back home in the States, and not a day goes by that we don't think about the amazing time we had at Djuma! Every time we look at our pictures ( which for me, Cathy, is every day!) it brings back the thrill and excitement of being on safari and being priveleged to observe all the beautiful wildlife there. I really miss it! We have so many fond and wonderful memories of our stay at Djuma Vuyatela. Everyone there was so warm and friendly to us, and we felt very much at home.
And what a nice surprise to see the article and pictures of the TV and DVD player being delivered to the clinic! We hope that these two items will provide the patients and community with interest and knowledge and will aid in educating the people on very important matters. It was a small contribution on our part, but we hope it will help.
I cannot end this note without asking about the lion pride we saw while we were there. Are they still around? I miss seeing the pride, especially the two male cubs! Is there any way to receive updates?
Please tell all your terrific staff hello from us, especially Handry and Amos; they helped show us the trip of a lifetime! One we will never forget.
We hope you all are well!

Kind regards,

Cathy (and John) Kasper
