I really enjoyed staying at an encampment at the top of a hill in the Samburu Reserve in Kenya. You reach it on a small plane; there is no electricity, no city noises and you sleep and shower under the Milky Way, with moths fluttering around a kerosene lamp, knowing that there are elephants and lions roaming free in the valley.
Cherie Lunghi

Victor Hugo

The higher the hill, the stronger the wind: so the loftier the life, the stronger the enemy's temptations.
