The Ghost & The Darkness
« on: August 05, 2011, 07:11:09 PM »
I read The Lions Of Tsavo when I was pretty young after a field trip to The Field Museum in Shitcongo. To think a teacher could see a kid in awe of some stuffed lions & tell them read this book.

Anyway I just watched The Ghost & the Darkness again. Really makes me want to return to Africa. After that book & that museum inspired me enough to spend lots of money on hunting in africa.

On my first safari I was fortune enough to have been stalked by some lions outside Kruger park in RSA. I had $18K saved up wanting a lion pretty bad when The wife & I got arrested over cluster fuck. Funny how life can crap on you.

Watching the movie seeing things I have not seen in a long time is one thing. Hearing the roar of the lions on the T.V. is nothing in comparison to sitting inside a boma around a blazing fire & feeling in your guts the roar of lions in the darkness under The Southern Cross.

That is an incredible movie but I cannot even imagine living it. Maybe some day!

I've always enjoyed Peter Capstick's retelling of the incident.
