    This morning we left at 6.30am to see the meerkats. Once the sun is up they emerge from their burrows to warm themselves in the sun before heading off for a days foraging. There were about 16 in the group, all sitting on camp chairs near their burrows until the first one poked their head out to make sure the coast was clear. We only had to wait about 15 minutes when ...

    ... opened so we headed back to our hostel to be left in charge of it for the night! A bit like the Shining.

    Cassiel has sprained his right foot a week ago from driving too much (who has ever heard of such a thing?!) and it hasn't gotten any better. When we get to Cape Town hopefully we can take it easy so his foot can heal. We did however drive over 5000 kilometers in 2 weeks!

Everywhere you went there was ostrich meat served at restaurants, ostrich leather at apparel stores, ostrich feathers, ostrich eggs, and ostrich racing! Yes, there is such thing as a professional ostrich racer in Outdshoorn. I would bet on these Ostriches any day of the week against a thoroughbred at the Del Mar racetrack in San Diego. I would love to sponsor one at that race just to have a ...

    ... when they're singing in a language you don't understand and you want to look away but you feel it would be impolite to break eye contact. It was great entertainment, a great evening all round, we got our faces painted with little traceries of white dots which is traditional. You looked round at all the diners in the tent as you went to get your food and each person has a unique design, no two individuals are the same, and there were hundreds of people in the tent. ...
