What a wonderful weekend. It took seven hours to actually drive there (the Kruger Park), but it was well worth it. I was as much a tourist as my Canadian aunt, because I've never been before either. We saw lion, a leopard (walking right next to our land rover), millions of elephant, some rhino, buffalo, baby hyenas that decided to nibble on our tyres, giraffe. The whole shebang really.
My FRench granny let her hair down considerably on Saturday night and got a little drunk on the whisky's, and it was fantastic. I woke up to a giant tarantula/spideroid thing right in my face which was rather disconterting - no terrifying - but other than that, we went on game drives twice a day, ate like kings and generally lived it up 'on safari.'
I've cvome back with a better mindset, and am ready to rock and roll in the city once more.
