This is the way we ended our busy but successful day today. This picture was taken from the balcony of the Hotel Mowanda where we are staying. After concluding our busy day, Oscar, Toutie and I adjourned to the deck to watch the sunset. It was worth the climb for me up the staircase but don’t tell the men I said that. Oscar is trying to reform my independent ways and get me to allow gentlemen to help me. Toutie is trying to instill even a smidgen of romance into my soul. .although I think that either one is bound to fail,It was Toutie’s idea to watch the sunset over the Chobe. I would give Oscar better odds on instilling any kind of change. Already since arriving in Botswana I have actually allowed men to lift my suitcases for me. I know for a fact that I will never turn into a romantic.

It will be a short post tonight as I am truly exhausted. It is time to crawl into my four poster African bed and sleep for tomorrow will be another busy day of making site visits to BONASO members. I seemed to have passed any number of tests today at our District Coalition meeting. Although English is the main language spoken, about 2/3 of the meeting today was a mixture of English and Setswana. Surprisingly enough I was able to continue to follow the general intent of the discussions which seemed to impress some of the participants. I also have to thank my Father as I proved my worth by being the only one in the room who was able to actually get the air conditioning going. Now that really earned me brownie points. Thanks Dad!

So good night for now and I will leave you with some pictures!
