Blair recorded 20+ hours  amongst 18 fellow  American student/tourists during a two week Kenyan 'Africa Study Tour' led by Prof. Paul Geisel from The University of Texas at Arlington in 1986. (Theodor Geisel, aka, Dr. Seuss, was his older brother.)

 A leaky fishing boat in Lake Victoria, and the rare witnessing of 3 female lions hunting down a wildebeast in the Masai Mara national preserve is heard.

Visiting one indigenous tribe, the chief commands, "we want to see you dance to our drumbeat!"

A ride on old British Railway cars dubbed "The Lunatic Express" to the Indian Ocean coastline resort of Mombasa.

Finally, a luncheon in our honor hosted by a cabinet member of the Kenyan president at a Nairobi hotel, where Prof. Geisel recounts the search parties scouring the Masai Mara up to 4 AM looking for a missing tour member.
