    Thank you very much for this, you are truly representing what it is like in these places. I am very grateful that we get to see this in our lifetimes, our childrenís' children may not get the chance.

    Wow thank you everyone for the good response, glad you like it! I have to admit that I'm having so much fun working through all the photos and recapping all the fun times we had in Botswana. The report is a bit of an effort but well worth it in years to come.

    I have attached week 2 in the original message at the top. Enjoy!

    Until the internet improves in my part of the world, so I can actually download your report, I'll have to be content reading the comments...

    ...while in a state of FOMO ridden angst.
