Week Four

So some of the hottest weather of the year is right before the rains begin in November.  Elton took some rare time off and visited a local hangout called "Stone City" on the Zambezi River. The rough flowing water makes it unsuitable in this location for hippos and crocs making it a safer place for people to venture in and cool off.  Elton estimates it was about 45ºC which is about 113ºF.
 Of course, Elton had to take a "selfie" to document the occasion.
 And the baboons also came down to the water for a drink.
 This is commonly how group transportation is done.
 All hands on deck to begin the construction of the stand to hold the 2500L water tank.
 Finally, Elton's uncle was able to purchase a chainsaw. This makes the process so much faster.
 What do they say? "Necessity is the mother of invention."  When you don't have a plate big enough for everyone, you can use a plastic bag.  Pap with a side of dried fish soup.
