“Who am I?” ( a flashback )
Who am I, you ask? That’s a good and necessary question. I used to be known simply as Dr. Charles Henley, biologist and college professor from Southern California. I was raised in Texas, but came to California because of a football scholarship and my interests in sun, surf, girls, and fun. To the amazement of many, I discovered a real love and appreciation for wildlife and nature. My studies and interests turned into a doctorate in biology. Upon graduation, I became a popular professor of freshman biology and botany. My now ex-wife often accused me of being too popular with some of my female students. This is a fact that was never confirmed to be true. After 8 years of teaching, I left sunny southern California, a life of khaki pants and golf shirts, to begin a new life in a world where every day brings the promise of a new adventure. What began as a lavish research project to observe, document, and photograph East African wildlife and plant life evolved into one of the largest safari businesses in East Africa.
