More than just cellulite-burning shoes.

I really need to get my trip to visit the Maasai organized. I could do it through a tour group, but I'd really prefer to get info from folks who are actually kind of in the know. So if you have any firsthand info on people to contact/things to know, please please PLEASE let me know ASAP.

Try my friends Roseann and Jonathan Hanson. Not sure if they are still doing Africa trips, but if not they might be able to steer you in the right direction:

Hi Julie, reading your book right now and really enjoying it. I was reading one of your old blogs last night about your cholesterol and I say bollocks to worrying about it. Julia Child lived until she was 94 years old and ate the kind of rich food she writes about. Don't cross over into the world of margarine (which is SO SO SO bad) taste wise and weird chemical processes wise. Eating natural, unprocessed foods is the way to go...oh and excercise too. Good luck! - a fellow foodie.

Hi, just wanted to say I read your book for the second time last month, and it was even funnier that time round. (Because if I wrote a book, I'd want to know it was a twicer, not a once only.)

Julie, I hope by now you have gotten the trip in order. It's so awesome that you are travelling the world! I am eagerly awaiting your next book.

You don't know me - I never followed your blog before you published your book (only because I didn't know about it), but I love your book - I've bought it many times, and given every copy away but the last.

I keep a bookblog at Bibliotica dot com and a general one at MissMeliss dot com, and wish you all the best.

P.S. Do you mind if I linke here from the book blog?

A friend of mine just returned from a 4-week trip to Tanzania, of which she spent 3 weeks living and working with the Maasai. I told her about your request and she should be getting in touch with you through this blog. When do you plan to go?

Hi Julie,

I'm a colleague of Teri's. I volunteered in Tanzania with a Maasai NGO called Kitumusote ( who does day-trip and overnight trip Maasai Cultural Safaris to raise funds for their organization. Not sure how long you'll be in TZ but unfortunately the founder and director, Kesuma, is in the U.S. now until mid to late October. You might still want to get in touch with him via the website. I believe he will get it that way. Otherwise if that doesn't work out (he is still sort of a one-man band right now), I'd suggest visiting the Tanzania Tourist Board for info on the Cultural Tourism Program, which can make some recommendations for you. Good luck! Feel free to email me if you need any more info -
