Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

Swaziland
Humans have domesticated many animals. Still there is many more animals that haven’t been submitted to humans. It’s much much more common to see some one riding a horse than a zebra. (Yes, riding a zebra happens.) In this picture the contrast is between domesticated animals (a horse) and wild animals (zebras and a warthog).

Victoria Falls Bridge (Wordless Wednesday)

Zambia/Zimbabwe

Between Zambia and Zimbabwe there is a railway bridge called Victoria Falls Bridge. This magnificent bridge was built 1904-1905 and at that time it was the highest bridge in the world! Bridge was built in England and shipped in parts to Africa. It was supposed to be a part of Cape to Cairo railway enterprise. That project was never finished. Anyway I think it’s a real beauty.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, Extra

Behind the Bookshelf

Zambia
Few years ago my husband and I stayed two nights on Bovu Island. There lives a couple who offers simple accomodation to travellers. In the evening it’s possible to enjoy a hot meal in an open living/dining room. There we had some extra company from genets which are living on the island. Genets came to see if they could have got any treats from the table.

The Ultimate African Experience

The Ultimate African Experience

Botswana
This photo might look a pit dull (because of a poor camera and low light) but the moment I took it was amazing. We were on a safari in Chobe National Park. In the evening when the sun had just gone down we came across of this herd of buffaloes. There were hundreds or maybe even a thousand buffaloes crossing a dry riverbed. Young ones and old ones all together. In that darkening night the ribbon of buffaloes continued as long as I could see. That alone was a mesmerising sight. But that alone wasn’t enought. The lions were also there. A pack of lions had killed a kudu and they were eating less than a hundred meters away from the buffaloes. One lion left the pack and moved closer to the buffaloes just to observe them. The lion was sitting there staring the buffaloes while we were sitting in a safari truck and staring her staring the buffaloes. The buffaloes went on and we had to return to the camp but that sight I will never forget.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Room

sekalaisia 134

Swaziland

Would you like to have a bathroom that’s airy, plain and lush? Here’s one for you!

This formerly very fancy bathroom belongs to an abandoned house which I have introduced to you already in my earlier posts here, here and here. (That last one is my own favorite.) Everything usable has been taken including the piping inside the walls. Only tiles are left. But aren’t they quite pretty? I swear that this bathroom has been luxurious when it was built.
