Sophia Services has been busy this year in Israel and France on private tours. There was serious interest earlier in the year for the trip to Assisi to study St Francis and the Goethean Safari in Kenya but, sadly, not enough participants to make them happen. We are trying again with both of them. Find info and the updated brochure for the Goethean Safari with Mark Riegner which I am happy to say we have been able to reduce considerably in price - by about $2000. Accommodation will be mostly in tented safari camps - not camping as we think of it, but permanent camps with tents, under cover, and with full bedrooms and bathrooms with toilets and showers. The local wildlife often wanders past :-) You can google these places listed in the brochure. Flights from the West Coast are only $1000 Nairobi return; from the East Coast only $800! There has never been a better time to get acquainted with an elephant, a giraffe, a rhino - you'll be able to touch each of them - as well as see them in their natural groups in their own environment. Mark will bring deeper studies of the animals, birds, plants and the topography with activities, beyond photography, to help us 'see' them more clearly. This is a fabulous opportunity! Take advantage of the low airfares! Details for the visit to Assisi in the last half of July are still being finalized and will be coming shortly. Please do check the website from time to time for updates. Hoping to see you next year on one of these worthwhile trips. If you would like to be taken off this email list please let me know. Thank you, Sarnia Guiton, Sophia Services
