TravelSavvy Mom recently published my review of the McCloud River Mercantile Hotel.
McCloud is a quaint, friendly town in northern California. Close to Mount Shasta, it boasts lots of hiking trails, some nice restaurants, and boutique shopping.
My writerly friend Jody Mace (who had a hilarious piece recently in the Washington Post about finishing last in a road race) blogged about my giraffe article, which was on the cover of Smithsonian magazine.
Niger, which is one of my favorite places on earth, and giraffes are showing up in all sorts of interesting places, like on Jefferson Public Radio, and a Bend TV website. Perhaps because of this press release?
It’s nice for Americans to hear good news from Niger and not just associate the country with starving children, which is one of our small-minded stereotypes.
