    ... water everywhere. I finally had my opportunity to watch an elephant water fight and watch them all bond together as a family. After we drove away past the elephants and disappeared into the jungle and now we came across a bunch of birds that were in trees and singing to one another. Our tour guide claimed they were singing mating calls and just talking to one another. While listening to the birds chirping and singing to one another it ...

    At Jaci's we had an amazing time! Every we day we got up at 6:30 and had some toast and porridge and went on a 7:00 game drive. At mid-morning we had rusks and hot chocolate in the bush. We then went back to the lodge for brunch which started with a muffin, some fruit, some yoghurt and some cheese. Next we had a hot dish which was either a full English or a dish of the day which could be a stir fry or that kind of thing. We could then ...

An hour into the journey we were stopped at a police road block. The policeman checked our car papers and asked a few questions. We told him that we were on our way back to South Africa. He then asked for some Coca Cola. I told him that we ...

Part of his travel plan is to volunteer for a month or so in an orphanage. He seemed generally happy overall but I could tell he still had a lot of healing to do. It's truly incredible how in such a short amount of time someone can make an impression on you and put your life in such a different ...
