It was one of those epic meet-ups with a friend. But in Africa. Something we thought possible but when confronted by so many of the uncertainties of the road, it seemed very touch and go.
Until it actually happened. I had come down overland from Cairo; he and his GF around in a loop thru South Africa and Namibia, when we met at Victoria Falls, in Zimbabwe. So began our road trip across Botswana. Months earlier Friend X had flown from NZ to South Africa to see his GF’s country, and travel around in a hired car. But this was no mere backpacking expedition. And I was grateful for a seat in a fast car. And the great companionship of an ancient friendship. And also for the stocked chilly bin of booze, too.
Following a tourist boat afternoon (sunset booze cruise) on the river of the Chobe National Park, with lots animals – re: the photos – and lots of laughter and idiocy – no pics sorry as I will maintain other’s privacy; that evening ascended into steak and continuous booze and then sexy awesomeness with local female company until mid-morning the following day. Enough said 😉
