Pictures from the Delta

Finally getting a chance to get some of our pictures on the blog for all to see. Following are some pictures of our trip into the Delta in Botswana. 2 nights with no facilities. But a really nice hole I might add. Everything including ourselves had to be taken out by Mokoro. Small, hand dug out canoes. Chester and Kirsten even made an attempt at becoming the first American Female Polers. Note a very good attempt I might add.

Hope you enjoy.

Chester made an attempt at a new career that might pay a bit more than teaching. She's going to stick to teaching.

Kirsten also tried a new career but quickly realized that with 2 bad knees she has no balance and not enough upper body strength. Yes there is water below those reeds.
