My Favorite Things: Out of Africa

“I stayed in the room where I was born, and tried to remember the colors of Africa”. -Meryl Streep

One of my favorite movies, I watched it twice this summer.

This might be one of the all time best movie scenes.

Influenced by colonial British rule, Karen Blixen’s home in Africa is just as one might imagine.

Her house in Denmark has a similar but more formal feel.

Karen Blixen published her book as Isak Dinesen.

If you have some free time this last weekend of summer put it on your “to watch” list.
