I can't wait for...



We ordered it this weekend!!! It was quite a dilemma deciding whether to get it now or not with the shipping and import fees for South Africa. Shipping would have been super expensive and then the import fees are like $300-600 dollars! So one of Ben's coworkers, Jude, lives in New York and he travels back and forth to see his wife once a month (he's just here for a couple months). So we shipped it to her. He's leaving this weekend to go home and he's going to bring it back over with him the first of April! Then we skip all the shipping and import hassle! YAY! I can't wait to have it. I love taking pictures of all the animals and with this lens, it's going to be a whole new world. I wish we had it for our trip next week, but oh well. I'll have it for all the rest of our time here! I'm also upgrading my flash and camera bag...very much needed.

This is my month-early birthday present from Benny. He's so great.
And we leave in 2 days for our TRIP!! (To Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe & Zambia and the Okavango Delta in Botswana!)

That lens is supposed to be one of the best from what I've read. I'm just a little jealous.
