One of the joys of visiting Etosha National Park is the time spent gazing at the activity around the waterholes. After a while the drinking hierarchy amongst the animals becomes apparent, with the zebra, giraffe, wildebeest and various antelope happily drinking their full until the elephants turn up. Once the family groups of elephants come into view the other drinkers slowly move away and stand peacefully at a safe distance, showing due deference, until their time comes again.
My partner Carol and I set off on a 400 day long trip around the Indian Subcontinent. Travelling mainly by local bus it proved to be an extraordinary adventure as we rubbed shoulders with many interesting people and visited fascinating places. We travelled through Sri Lanka, much off India and into Nepal and wrote the book Cardamom Days upon which my blog is based. We wanted the trip to be extraordinary and extraordinary is what it proved to be.
