Today we arrived in the town of Maun where we plan to stay for 3 nights. Found a nice Rondavel Chalet. Looking forward to a break after 5 nights of camping in the wild.
You would have thought Karyn would be all over me with hugs and kisses on our arrival. After safely navigating and driving 4 days of bush trails and keeping Harley from getting stuck, getting Harley restarted after stalling in water, keeping Harley from rolling over in a deep hole, standing guard while Karyn peed in the jungle and finding the correct trail after getting lost. But not Karyn; rather than focusing on how I kept her safe and alive the last 4 days in the jungle, she focused on why I took her there in the first place. Talk about the glass being half empty rather that half full. Hah, Hah
We have now travelled 4 different countries in Southern Africa. I must say that to this point, in many ways, Africa is the most difficult area I have travelled. Getting any information or advice or help from the general population, or even from the supervising staff in a local business is difficult and in many cases impossible. I expect this is a cultural thing, and I tell myself a big reason we travel is to experience different cultures. It is frustrating, but if every thing worked the same as in Canada, why would I even bother to visit different countries.
