Botswana Now this is one wonderful place in Africa – This vter had the privilege of visiting here for work ever 3 or 4 months for a 4 year period of time and fell in love with this place. A real success story in Africa and a really great safe place to get the colors, feel, smells of Southern Africa. I was most impress in a drive from South to North that ever few mile someone was living on the side of the road in charge of keeping that section of the road clean – it it was spotless. Drive twenty or thirty miles and stop to see elephants or giraffes crossing the road. What a place.
One of my highlights is the 12 days I spent with the Ju/'Hoansi people one of the group of folks know as the Khoisan language, San or Bushman. This group live are about 8,000 in number and live in the Northwest District of Botswana. Another high light was the wonderful game parks like Chobe, the Okovango and oh the birds wonderful birds like the lilac breasted roller oh sooo beautiful. Finally (and I will stop boring you) but -- the baskets of Botswana and the patterns are wonderful.
It you like me are and read the wonderful stories set in Botswana by Alexander McCall Smith's Like the Number one detective agency one of the stories the Tears of the Giraffe is the name of one of the Botswana Basket patterns other pattern names for the baskets are the urine trail of a bull, knee of a turtle. This one is the in the photo is the Tears of the Giraffe.
