    ... spotted jackal tracks, then rhino tracks, just below our bungalows! Then a herd of Burchell's zebra watching us from close by. Beautiful! From there we spent almost three hours, we had so many sightings. We passed near kudu before spotting white rhino, but dead-eyed Ted had spotted a giraffe across the riverbed, so off we went there first. A large male over 10 years old was nibbling at the thorny acacias, and we stayed nearby just watching him and taking photos as ...

    ... we had to stop for about 10 minutes because a logging truck in front of us screwed up trying to take a turn and got stuck. The fog continued for what seemed like forever, and a number of vehicles were driving like complete maniacs. Thankfully the road was lit up like an airport runway.

The first bus took an hour to get ...

    ... just seething with humanity, especially at 8am. We manage to keep Peter in site at a distance and eventually got to the Mozambique / Swaziland border without incident. The border crossings are quite intimidating, with armed military and not so friendly inspectors.

    ... but eventually find the place. An amazing , relatively new temple that is very ornate.
    Inside is a huge octangular room where they hold their gatherings and worships. The ceiling is reminiscent of European cathedrals w/ paintings of various stages of Krishna's life (he's the blue colored Indian Deity-usually depicted as a baby eating honey).
    "Hare Krishners" get a bad rap, as most of the world sees the shaved head white people trying to ...
