      ... their deceased ancestors and they need to keep the spirits happy to maintain a good life. Funerals are a big event, often bigger than weddings and anyone is welcome.

      The bus ride was one of banter about Aussie Football and much concern was had about Kaye missing her beloved Geelong team. To quote 'I am a football tragic and the sherry decanter will be better off whilst I am away!" We arrived at the ...

      ... take 8 weeks and women do thatching that takes 4 weeks. Saw beads. Portuguese brought glass beads over, previously used seeds for skirts, headdress and jewellery.

Sat on verandah drinking wine, eating chocolate and writing diary, Impala on ...

      Back to Wendy's for a great dinner and early night ready for a crack of dawn start tomorrow!

      ... By this time we were experiencing thunder and lightning and rain had started.
      On the boat this weather continued and it started to rain fairly heavily. Still much lightning and thunder. The cruise is always interesting however and we saw many hippos although no crocodiles. Several interesting birds were seen - yellow billed kites, fish eagle and Goliath heron together with waterbuck and buffalo at the water's edge.

      ... slightly contemptuous of people. The lion's stare left me with no doubts that, for these wild cats, I could just as easily have been an easy and guilt free lunch.

      At one point, we came across a breeding pair - not more than 10 metres from the Bakkie - a surreal moment if ever there was one. (It should have been accompanied by the Beatles track, Why Don't We Do It in the Road.) Apparently lions make love in short, ecstatic bursts ...
