And so it began...

It was 1914 and Karen Blixen was, this date, stepping off the boat in Mombasa and headed toward her wedding at the Muthaiga Club.

Later she would have come up that long drive to the place she called home. And the place in which she would finally become
herself and find that voice through which we now know her.
How wonderful for us all that she made the journey.

Amusingly, we watched it just the other night. Yes, Trooper was a - er - trooper and enjoyed it.

Interesting to watch it with someone who didn't know the story...
