Which of these three things will not be going to Africa with me?
The insect repellent clothing is a definite.....an extra safety factor for me who is loved by mosquitoes everywhere!
A few good books for afternoon lounging between game drives at the safari camps......this series set in Botswana, by Alexander McCall Smith, is so wonderful. I've actually read this first one and am now on the second, so will have to buy two more to take with me!
BUT those huge sea chests filled with elegant clothes and dainty high-heeled shoes......no way. My little duffle bag is stuffed to the gills with khaki colored bush clothes, and that's all I'm allowed to take. It has to be squished into those tiny planes when flying over the bush from camp to camp.
My trip to Africa is getting closer and I'm getting really excited. Remember, I won't be blogging while away.....weight allowance and a soft bag will not handle a laptop, and besides there is no Internet available in most places where I'll be staying. I have stocked up on photo cards and batteries though and hope I'll have some fabulous images to share with you when I return.
