Deep Overload

Yes, it’s possible to have too much fun.

I’ve done so many things, seen so much, taken so many photos that I’m having too many new experiences to properly process them (and the attendant photos) by writing  I get to my computer and have too many choices of what to write about, what photos to post, and just can’t make a decision.  Everybody should have my problems.

Then the world conspires to confuse and addle me.  We are currently in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.  My Google News page somehow magically knows where I am, and gives me local weather.  Oddly, very oddly, the dateline for today’s weather is “Matabeleland North, Rhodesia”.  Rhodesia ceased to be a country in 1980, when it was replaced by Zimbabwe.  Google came into existence 18 years later.  Why, then, do I have the weather for Rhodesia?

Elephants in the water.  I like elephants almost as much as I like kids.

Tomorrow we fly back to Johannesburg, then Monday we head to Kruger Park for a few more days of safari.  So I’ll have another 1000 photos to winnow down.  We’ve seen plenty of elephants, wart hogs, water bufflao and impala, now we’re hoping to see the big cats: lions, leopards and cheetahs.  And giraffes, those most graceful and beautiful of creatures.

Water buffalo.  Not graceful or beautiful.

Trying hard not to get jaded.  We had a sunset cruise tonight on the Zambezi river, just motoring in the area above the falls.  The weather was perfect, the canapés were delectable, Zimbabwe on the south and Zambia on the north, friends and family around and I was busily missing the big animals.  Got to stay in the moment and appreciate living the very good life.
