|Yuan and vehicle|
In the afternoon we do a walking safari with Jill, a lady who is the head ranger here. Don't meet much in terms of big animals, or even small animals for that matter. A bit disappointed as I did not come here to see small flowers and footprints. Our guide does not allow us to get closer to hippos than about 250 meters with a pond between us. Ok safety first but this seems a bit excessive to me.
End of the day with another spectacular game drive with Yuan. This time it is cheetahs who keep us company.
To cap an exhilarating drive, a lone white rhino happens to be on our way but keeps grazing carelessly as we drive by.
Great meals as usual in the Lalibela lodge, and enjoyable evening by the fireplace backing up pictures to my hard drives and talking to Yuan about his country and his life. All he wants is a peaceful South Africa, he is too young to even remember apartheid anyway. He says his parents tought differently, but they belong to a different era, that seems almost inconceivable now. Of course.
