Where I stayed
I am glad that I went on the 90 minute late afternoon San bushman's walk as within a few year's this will be lost ... the handing down of century old customs, which plants and roots to survive off, which ones to use for medicine, which one has water in it, how to make fire from rubbing 2 sticks.
That evening we were entertained to dancing by the San villagers. So different to what I had seen anywhere else.
With the increasing western influence, I am sure that the next if not current generation will have lost in only a few years much of what I saw a glimpse of. Thank you San bush people.
Botswana while rich in diamonds, has a major alcohol problem (so the government are increasing the prices), over 50% of the population has HIV / Aids and they have a life expectancy of just 28 years!!!!
