 The sunset driving into Kasane
 Below are those wonderful Mopani worms mixed in a sauce, doesn't it look delicious.  At the Cresta each night they had a buffet which included traditional African food, Mopani worms included, I went for the non-traditional food.
 Our P-Day on the Chobe River with President and Sister Chadambuka, this boat would hold many people but the four of us and the owner and about 5 family members were the only ones.  They invited us for a dinner cruise and braai (it did not include the Mopani worms) we were able to spend extra time on the boat after normal hours.  Keep in mind this only cost us R250 which is about $19.00 US Dollars each.  They did not charge us for the snacks and dinner they provided us with.  We had a wonderful relaxing day, we haven't had many of those.


 Sunset on the Chobe River next two pictures

 Dad getting his third speeding ticket in Botswana.  What makes it bad was we were just arguing about the speed, I said the GPS shows it is 120k and he thought he saw a sign that said 80 - He was right.  They set speed traps just after the speed changes and on the down hill slop most of the time.  Who would have guessed his only three speeding tickets in his life and they are while we are on our mission.  President and Sister Chadambuka couldn't believe I was taking a picture, they said if they saw they would probably come and take my ipad camera away.
