A back road near Geelong

with a beautiful view.

***

Not a Botswana back road,

however with wandering livestock,

it could be a back road

We travelled over this road for several hours

before reaching the salt lake.

 

Greater Kruger National Park…

…provided a variety of tracks/roads

and many wandering wildlife.

 

This Kruger National Park road

may pass for a back road,

but it isn’t and that maybe that is

why the hyenas used it.

WeeklyPrompts-PC-Ruffin’-It

~~~~~~

~~~~~

 

Our 2014 Botswana Safari was the last time

we came near to ruffin it.   

We soon discovered that connecting to the internet

in the Kalahari Desert and Okavango Delta

was not going to happen.

 

Instead we once again discovered the joys

of sitting and eating around a campfire,

sleeping in tents, without any connection

to family and friends via social media networking.

However, even on our rough trip

our guide acted as cook.

We all commented on how nice it was

to spend 7 nights around a campfire.

Upon arriving at Chobe we once again

were able to access the outside world

via our social media connections.

Conversation died a quick death as

all eyes were fixated on our devices.

So much for ruffin’ it  🙂

…sharin’ our load, side by side.

bridge

a structure carrying a road, path, railway, etc.
across a river, road, or other obstacle.

Bridges…

…past their…

 

 

use by date.

 This is a new bridge.

Personally, I would want to be

crossing as quickly as possible.

 

Still, it is a vast improvement

on the old bridge.
