Andrea cruising in a Mokoro. They had switched to some boats being made out of plastic for forest conservation. Plastic is good with me. I liketechnology especially when there are crocodiles just below your ass.

One of the first animals I got to see was this 7′ Python. Nice.

A nice evening view. Almost as good as cable tv. Who am I kidding, nothing is better than cable tv. I miss you so, cable tv.

We got a place just a couple of yards from the river. It seemed like a good spot until late at night the herd of Elephants came walking by along the river bank. It was a bit nerve wracking as the thundering foot steps and bellowing were just outside the nylon tent flaps. I wasn’t as worried as Daniels tent was closer to the water than me and I was just waiting for his screams before I made a run for it.

We saw herds of a Zebras, Wildebeast, Giraffes, Antelopes, and other horned and tusked creatures. No lions though unforuneately.

A skull of an elephant. Kinda big.

When you can basically stand and almost curl up in an animals footprint, you know they are one big beast.

One good thing about Africa is that they have firewood. In South America, I had one place where I had an actual fire. Here, its a piece of cake and really nice to relax next to after a hard day of game walking.

This is the “champagne” colored water. It is kind of champagne colored, but more pee toned to me. We got to swim in a little pool which was quite nice. Supposedly no Belizaria (Schistosomiasis) but we’ll see. Daniel and Andrea ran out of water and was drinking the stuff, and they seemed to have survived so maybe it is alright. For me, I ain’t drinking water that isn’t clear as a bell and chemically treated.
