Trip to Botswana

 Slept in my first thatched roof  room at Tati River Lodge
 Look at this sign, you see one about every 15 miles, they are telling you that a "rest stop" is coming up in 1 km.  Their rest stop consists literally of 1 tree and a cement picnic table.  A picture of the "rest stop is a couple of pictures below.
 We encountered 5 of these police stops on our way from Gaborone to Francistown, most of the time they just wave you through.  However on our way back we were stopped and asked for our drivers license, they are not use to seeing American Drivers Licenses.
 In this picture you will notice the animals on the side of the road, as we have mentioned before, they are all over in Botswana, and you do not want to drive at night for this very reason.  These happen to be a herd of goats, but we encountered herds of cattle all over.
 They call Botswana the bush country, so I took a picture so you can see what they are talking about, this is pretty much the view from Gaborone to Francistown, Botswana
Now here is the picture of the "REST STOP".
