It's my last full day on Harnas for this trip. I leave tomorrow for Windhoek and for home on Friday, arriving midday on Saturday. It's been a wonderful trip. I've tried to cover a lot of stuff, but here's some tidbits I've missed.
Nearly every evening an hour or so before sunset, I take a pack of dogs for a bushwalk. Last night there were five, and it's my job to keep them together and near me. The one in the picture above is named Spice--a chow cut to look like a little lion, appropriate for Harnas. We often walk past the volunteer village to a big waterhole there. The dogs chase off the springboks and wildebeests and take over the place, jumping in, swimming, drinking, and cooling off. Then we head back home, where they do the same thing at one of the smaller waterholes near the lapa. It's good exercise for us all, and it gives me my daily dog fix.
But it's time to go home, go back to work, and make enough money that I can come back. See you on the other side of the world. BB
