In October last year, near Ole dikdik creek in Masai Mara, Kenya, leopard Kaboso took her 4 and half month old cub out of the bush. The cub was very shy at first, she hugged her monther's neck and didn't want to let go. Kaboso waited patiently for the cub to adapt to the new environment. The cub slowly became active and began to jump around her. Finally, followed Kaboso, the cub completed the task of jumping the river. We believe that was her first jumping the river.

Ten years ago, my retired husband and I started our journey to see the world. We have since traveled to more than 50 countries and visited African more than 20 times. We used cameras to capture what we saw. The photos became the way to express our feelings.
