    ... to happen with them. But they are now with disappointing frequency.

    They agreed to put us up in a good hotel for the night and to drive us to the airport for the 11:00 am flight, but we’ve lost all of tomorrow. It will all be cars, airports and a plane, unfortunately not one going to the Mara. That’s one full day lost out of our hoped-for safari. And we’re not out of the jungle yet.

    I flip to the page and hand the passport back. She looks at ...

    ... be on a tight schedule so if we had a breakdown it wouldn’t be a major problem. I was surprised to see a fellow I didn’t know wearing dirty clothing and sitting in the back seat between Justin and André. I asked about him. It turns out he was a pusher. No not that kind of pusher, not drugs. He pushes cars.

    ... Well then, he said, I could buy him a freezer and some equipment to open a butcher’s shop. I asked how much that would cost. He didn’t know exactly, but said he could find out.
