Visiting Small Towns in Botswana

Friday, December 30, 2011  at 6:58 AM
Our first stop in Botswana was a small town called Gumare in the north.  We spent one day walking out into the Okavango Delta, proceeding to get scorchingly sunburnt in the bright sunlight, compounded with the reflection off of the ubiquitous white sand

We ended up walking to a small village without electricity, but they did have an internet cafe powered by solar power!

We were struck by the differences between Botswana and many of the previous countries we had been to, mainly due to the stable government which provided schooling, government subsidies for farmers, and would even provide food for those who did not have any.  All in all, this was a lovely introduction to Botswana!
