I'm unfit though, having pigged-out in front of computer and TV for the last month - I'm looking forward to a week of aching muscles ... :)
Watching worldwide events unfolding on TV has reinforced my belief that Global Chaos on an unprecedented scale is not only inevitable but, looming imminent.
With this in mind, a main priority is to finance and install a Solar-Powered pump on the borehole which would guarantee an independent Water source.
On a lighter note, a few random pics which I hope you'll like:
Grass like Snow.
A touring Motorcyclist on a remote gravel road - what's interesting about this guy is that he has a camera mounted on his helmet, allowing him to take pics all the time - how cool is that?
The Fur People alerted me to this Helmeted Terrapin near their cage - I was surprised to find it so far from water but, I've since heard that they're sometimes found in the most unlikely, inhospitable places.
Quiver tree - Aloe dichotoma
A bird perched on an island in a sea of grass.
Two Dung Beetles vie for possession of the Ball.
This pic was taken from a moving car - a Woman in the middle of nowhere, carrying her possessions on her head.
Most rural African Women learn, from a young age, how to balance and transport sometimes unbelievably heavy loads on their heads for long distances.
The only thing I've ever seen a Man carry on his head is a hat.
I have no TV at home and don't feel confident about my Internet connection - I hope to be able to post occasionally but, even at best, my time on-line will be limited.
Keep well hey.
