the breakup

Well, that's what it feels like! Tomorrow Rahima will board a plane to Australia while I fly up to Uganda for just under two weeks. It feels so weird, considering we have spent nearly every waking (and sleeping) minute side by side. Incredibly, we have done so without one fight. Lots of laughs though, and a really good balance of personalities. Now that is a good travel buddy and a great friend! Now if only I could find a guy who can put up with me like that...

So back to Uganda. My friend Chris (Young) is working with an organization in Uganda and so I decided to go check out what he is doing while I am so close. Since it wasn't in our original plan, Rahima will stick to our itenerary and I'll meet up with her in a few weeks time.

We had a blast in Kruger Park. We had incredible luck and saw all of the big 5 (lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, and rhino) along with so many other amazing creatures. Hippos are pretty cool. :). I got some amazing pictures and even got chased by a greedy little monkey who snuck into the car and stole two plums. I kept him from stealing the whole food bag, but boy was he mad at me. He hissed at me and then literally ran after me, grabbing at my ankles and scaring the sh*t out of me! Nasty little buggers, but very cute.

We just got back to Jo-burg tonight and everything is closed early being a saturday evening, so no great internet cafes to upload pictures. The hotel where we are staying wants $25 US for 4 hrs of computer usage. Yeah right! I could live for days on that.
