Spring in a petting zoo and more family
Trip Start Mar 14, 2006

Apparently this may be one of the routes Mike will take me so we did not stop a lot for me to take photos. I have found this in Africa so far, that my hosts do not stop a lot. They point out the most amazing things and then just move along without stopping. And the spring flowers along the roadsides were quite gorgeous. Grrr. Anyway, I hope I do have a chance on Sunday to do that
Well, we did not actually get to the butterflies and monkeys - we stayed at the petting farm longer. A goat had just had a baby and I took lots of shots of baby goats, pregnant moms, a large ram, a couple of very strange chickens, birds (swallows, geese), Arum lilies in a field, a white cockatoo named Monty, I think and other African farm animals.
We got back and were able to do a bit of a shop for dinner. One of my cousin's sons came over and we had some pork covered in bacon as well as a stir fry of broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini and sweet potato. And Strawberries and cream for desert. Yummy!
We were up until about midnight as he is fascinated in the family tree I brought with me. He is a very nice fellow, a lawyer in the Municipal law field. Reminds me somewhat of other of my cousins. Worried, as all are, about the type of government they have now and may have in the future. Was able to get some nice shots of him and his Mom.
