My favorite movie is "Out of Africa." Karen was a beautiful, intelligent, interesting woman. This is Karen Blixen with her brother Thomas Dinesen, see comment below for more.. (not as we romantics would like to think, 'Great White Hunter' Denys Finch Hatton (redford played him in the movie of Out of Africa, Meryl Streep was Karen)
Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen, 1885–1962) 'I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills. The Equator runs across these highlands, a hundred miles to the North, and the farm lay at an altitude of over six thousand feet. In the daytime you felt that you had got high up, near to the sun, but the early mornings and evenings were limpid and restful, and the nights were cold.'
