The following post is from a series of emails I wrote to my girlfriend at the time, whilst on a trip to Africa. She is now my wife, so I did something right.
Good and horrible at the same time, is how I would describe today.
I’ll deal with the horrible first. We got up early, my body aching from the previous two days exercise. I was loaded into the back seat of the car with two young girls, fine in small doses, but rather high on the “Uncle Chris, why are you sitting in that seat? Uncle Chris, why are you looking tired? Uncle Chris, why are you breathing heavily? Uncle Chris, why are you your hands round my neck…” factor. I then spent most of the next 6 hours, cramped next to them, hot, tired and thus a little stressed. It was worth it though…
The good, I’ll leave to the photos.
“And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.”
I was happy to get home, but it was worth it.
