WeeklyPrompts-PC-Comfort

 

Five years ago we were readying ourselves

for our trip to Botswana.

To help with our budgeting

we agreed to ‘rustic’ accommodation.

Little did we know that our first night would

be spent in a hut which had a 12 inch gap

between the roof and walls.

The following night, while walls and roof met,

however the triangle above the front and back walls

was only filled in with chicken wire.

Our comfort, again was controlled by

chilly winds blowing in, through, or out. 😊

From there on we were in tents.

Warm and comfortable.

Upon reaching Chobe Resort…

…spent a few nights…

…in a level of comfort we…

…had not previously experienced

during this trip.

Looking over the edge of the Burj Khalifa’s

148th floor Observation decknearly 2,000 feet (1821 feet to be precise)

above Dubai city…

…and the buildings below appear to be miniatures.

The Burj Khalifa also stands next to the Dubai Fountain…

 

…where from the edge of the pool we watched…

…the fountain perform to

It’s Time To Say Goodbye‘.

Sadly, for us, it was time to

say Goodbye to Dubai.

Next year we plan to be back in…

…South Africa and Botswana.

 

It will be our third trip and we hope to

see Meerkats in their natural habitat.

This one was guarding its territory

in the Melbourne Zoo.

These images will, I hope, thrill the rest of my extended

family who are also coming along for the ride.

 

While our first lion sighting was this pride,

on the shore of the Olifant River,

lion sightings were better later on.

 

We were about forty metres from

the action in my footer image.

After tiring of annoying mum,

the cubs came and watched us watching them

at a distance of around 20 feet.
