Figures rule our lives…
They tell us when we can eat and
how much the meal will cost.
…the weight a bridge will hold…
..how fast we can travel.
I’m told 63 Degrees is the temperature
of a cup of coffee at a popular coffee shop
In some countries, it is wise to read and obey
these safety warnings.
Signboards like this tell us how far to the next town
and what number the road is.
As students arrive at and leave school
there are periods of time when drivers
have to slow to 40 km per hour as they
pass through school zones.
Figures on a clock advise us of how much
of the day has passed by.
Black and White Challenge.
Burj Khalifa…the largest/tallest building
I have ever been in.
An elephant’s ear…rather larger
than any other ear, I have seen.
However, those ears look right at home
on their owner.
Californian Redwood in Geelong Gardens
Lekhubu Island, Botswana.
A welcoming committee was awaiting
our arrival at our next
Okavango Delta campsite.
It was only after we were out of the vehicle
that these Yellow-Billed Hornbills
donned their vehicle inspector’s caps.
The boss had a really good look around.
He even spotted my camera bag
on his way through.
Inspection completed, they quietly left…
…but not before checking out
the good looker in the mirror.
Off-Road in Okavango Delta,
…came complete with garbage disposal…
…and one or two locals in whose
thoroughfare we were camped.
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.
Our 2014 Botswana Safari was the last time
We soon discovered that connecting to the internet
in the Kalahari Desert and Okavango Delta
was not going to happen.
