Alone on the Plains of Wakkerstroom
I really need to start at the beginning of my South Africa journey and tell you all the highlights, but I am, today, feeling the effects of jetlag and will have to settle for a short post. As I was going through my digital photos from the trip, Liam walked up to my desk and plopped himself in my lap. This is the conversation we had about the photo below:
Liam: "Dad, is that you in that picture?"
Me: "Yep, that's me in South Africa."
Liam: "What the heck were you doing in the middle of nowhere?"
Me: "I was looking for birds."
Liam" "But how did you get outta there?"
Me: "There was a bus about a mile away that we rode in."
Liam: "I wouldn't want to be walkin' my feet off back to that bus!"
Me: "Would you like to be there with me looking for birds?"
Liam: "For TRAINS. Yes. Birds? Nope!"
Me: "That's my boy!"
Liam: "Yep and that's my dad!"
Ohhh it's good to be home.
