Tent City

There's this trend in luxury resorts called "glamping" (glamorous + camping -- yes, it's a pretty awful word) that keeps piquing my interest. I think it's the aesthetic of a FortyNiner's canvas tent + the safari campaign furniture + electricity. Or maybe it's just the clear air you get when you sleep with the windows open, taken to the nth degree. At any rate, here's Tent City at the Resort at Paws Up.

with good weather, and not too many flying bugs, this could be SO much fun.

I lived in Kenya for a while and went on a safari in a tented resort like this. It was wonderful! The weather was very cool at night, but employees came around with a hot water bottle for your bed. Plus, the bathroom was very nice with modern amenities.

Did anyone else make tents in their backyards? Probably not, but it required a clothesline!! My friends and I would make tents with all the blankets/quilts we could roundup and up clothes pins to hang them and partition rooms off. Then we would decorate! I think I'm the only one still "making rooms up."

Fantastic! Very "Out of Africa" looking.

Sounds like fun Asher.
