So I arrived to Gaborone on Valentine's Day ( which I spent on the bus from Pretoria) and the border crossing was a little long and strict. Chris, my couchsurfing host, came to pick me up from the bus, and we ended up cooking with another friend Sheila. The next few days were filled with coping with the dry heat of Gaborone, cafe hopping, seeing the monument, going to eat and seeing Die Hard 5, a Hash run, and yoga (3 times!) I have been trying to figure out which way to head up North, and Chris' amazing hospitality has definitely made it easy to stay a few days longer in Gabs, even though there really isn't much to see or do. So i'm off tomorrow to Nata, from where I will head over to the Salt Pans. the plan is to then head over to Gweta to see another part of the Pans, then Maun and see the Okavango Delta (perhaps try to hire a plane and fly over), Sepupo and see the Tsodillo Hills, then back East to see Chobe National Park and head into Zambia! I have only a few pictures of Botswana so far..and they are mostly from a grocery store!
