Day 7 - 'Jurassic Park'

... ocean'. The dive site is not easy to find, Jason had made his own map with GPS coordinates, and drawn out the reef contours himself. This is unexplored territory, not another tourist in site! The guys wet-suit up and get ready for their dive. "What should I do if we see a Bull, Tiger or Great White", Jon asks. "Don't swim toward it", Jason replies, "you'll scare it away!" Seriously, that was his reply! My heart starts pounding, no time for a goodbye, they have to get in ...

Mozamboogie, piggy backing baboons + river fever

A travel blog entry by brae88


... old portugese houses still standing. Most of them are now shells and the bullet holes are still visible from the war. Even the beach front houses were shot to bits. From what I can see, the people are poor but they seem happy. Each village looks to be self sufficient with water pumps, their own gardens and livestock.
