A special thanks to you, Markus, you are an excellent guide. Your spotting and identification abilities are astounding to me. Also, you had so many 'crazy' things popping up on that trip [Cameroon 2011] and you handled each magnificently. Right after I got back, I started looking at which future tours you will be leading. I certainly hope to cross paths with you again. Also, tell the staff who handled all my questions and got information to me so quickly... hello and you did a wonderful job. Thanks to all of you.
