I got my Botswana Driver's License today and my picture is awful because the camera is set for black people and the flash is very bright. They couldn't figure out how to get the flash to not be as bright so I look like a ghost. There are a lot more dangers here driving in Africa than in the States. Cows, Donkeys, Goats, Chickens, occasionaly a horse or a herd of monkeys will cross your path so you always have to be on the lookout. There are also the drunk drivers that go around after dark because the cops quit working after 5pm so no one will catch them. Traffic lights are called robots and turn offs are called slip aways. There are roundabouts instead of most traffic lights and orange lines are on the outside while white lines are down the middle. Oh and there is of course the fact that you drive on the other side of the road.

That sounds like fun!:) Are you getting to do a bunch of driving yet? Have you had any close calls trying to remember to drive on the left side?

God Bless
