Frankly I do not know what a dork is. You look like a beautiful young woman to me...
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Very entertaining video, with beautiful views on the surrounding. You make a good impression, Elsa !

I guess it is difficult to have a normal interview with someone who wants the word all the time ;)

Apparently none of NG folks pay any slightest attention to Mike Wallace.  Poor guy....

Maybe because of the level of experience of the NG members vs the level of experience of his general audience ... ?

I met him when he passed though Gdl, he is quite an interesting character, and has stories for every placed he has visited

His way of living is quite different, and just that makes him interesting to talk to

and we have known Elsa for far longer :)
Mark is all politeness vs Elsa who just say it straight and that is more fun

Armando, don't take my comment seriously.  :D  Except for those who had met Elsa in person, I'm sure we are all interested to see Elsa in motion!

Can't come to visit you - at least for a few years - but you are welcome to my home if you pass by Manchester.
BTW agree with the comment on Mr Wallace doing all the talking. You had kind of a bemused look whenever he interrupted you :)

Thanks for sharing Elsa.
I'm looking forward to visiting Africa some day.
Two observations:
That fence separating people from the lions seems no very safe!!!! I was quite scared while seeing the scene.
Bjorn must be very happy to see the sturdiness of the guy's tripod. lol

You got him some very nice shots Elsa!

I too can confirm from personal experience that Elsa is not a dork. And she is a great guide who puts in a huge amount of effort to find the best places and show you what you want to see.
