I had a very enjoyable evening out last night, excellent food and company. In fact I met a lovely couple for the first time. She is Motswana and he is from Poland. As everyone was conversing over dinner, there were seven of us so there was a lot of conversing, Tommy from Poland brought up this interesting piece of news.

He asked if anyone had heard the news reports of the flooding on the Limpopo River? This the river that flows by where I am going to be staying on the border of Botswana and South Africa. I had of course heard of the flooding during our heavy rainfall last week. However, what I wasn’t aware of was this part of the story.

Apparently the heavy flooding of the river has resulted in 15 – 18 thousand crocodiles on a farm by the river escaping. Yes, that is 15,000 or more crocodiles on the loose in the Limpopo River!!!! If you don’t believe me check out this article http://www.theworld.org/2013/01/crocodiles-african-river/

Guess I don’t have to worry about be eating by a Lion. It is more likely that I will be eaten by a crocodile or two. Well, at least it will be an adventure!
