Merc1, Thats the only pic I have with my "Hitman" shirt on. I was taking most of the pics.

 

Opash, I did get close and personal with the shanty town. I did not take pictures of them though as I was working and it would have been in poor taste at the time. They did not have electricity or running water at the location I visited. The people would go to a filling point and fill up huge jugs of water to be used during the day. Put your pics up if you can. I've been to South Africa twice (Joberg) and I really like it there. I've been to Cameroon, Kenya, South Africa, and Senegal so far.

ABFproductions Actually, Zebras, unlike donkies and horses, are very hard to tame, let alone domesticate. They are expert biters and very prone to doing so, are instictively good at dodging larrietes, and would as soon kill a human as let one ride them. Compared to zebras, horses are big ol' puppy dogs. Europeans in South Africa have had no luck with the Zebra for these reasons, although they have tried for a while. At least, accorsding to what I've read in Guns, Germs and Steel.

poobear, I'm about 1/3 of the way through Guns, Germs, and Steel right now. I haven't got to the zebra part yet :-) I'm just finishing up all the farming stuff in the Fertile Crescent.

 supersaiyan , I wanted to put a choke hold on a dead Giraffe that I saw, but my guide would not let me leave the trail that we were on. We spotted the young Giraffe through bino's and he looked to be a fresh kill.

I tried to convince my guide to leave the trail, but he was concerned for my safety ( with my luck the lion would have been waiting for me)

It would have made a cool photo!

Were you there for the peace treaty (b/t SPLMA and Sudan gov't)? My buddy was just in Kenya specifically for that. Did you go to any other countries? Another friend just came back from southern Sudan. He had no running water and electricity only at night. Didn't seem to bother him though.

KidJustice, when were you in South Africa? Did you get to see much of it or were you primarily in Joburg?
