The day I was born!

A travel blog entry by burkeandcindy


... you have completed all courses. I want to highlight Holmes ate wildebeest. Burke and I also had a bite of her dish... It was really good! Very tender! Burke and I ate lamb tongue and cheek... When on a regular basis we don't eat lamb at all, let alone it's face! But it was tasty and we enjoyed every course. I loved the courses were set up using local herbs and favors. It really gave us a great taste of africa, perfect for a special ...

We then headed back ...

War and Peace

A travel blog entry by sarahinsoafrica


... I noticed a car stopped at a stop sign. There were two men in the car, both black and probably in their 30’s. White guys in their 20’s approached the car and started banging on the windows, pretending to be beggars. One of them even stuck his hands inside the car. I wouldn’t have blamed the driver for smacking him in the face (I wanted to!) but instead the driver just waved and drove off. I didn’t know what to make of the incident. I was unsettled and ...
