Camping in Africa!

Over the weekend we went camping in the middle of a Zambian national wildlife refuge - Kasanka National Park. These elephants went walking about 200 yards from our campsite and Drew got about 20 yards from a hippo rustling in the tall grasses before we high-tailed out of that area. Crazy!!! We did a lot of fishing on this river running through it - Drew caught 3 fish, 5 trees, and my glasses which fell into this river. Luckily we did not have to jump into this croc infested river to retrieve my glasses - Drew got lucky and caught them on his lure on the end of his rod. This was a fun camp-out, though it unbelievably got to the low 40s at night. It was like being in a dessert - 80s in the daytime, cold at night. Besides the cold, the pukos - a small antelope - would snort at each other, and the hippos would grunt to help keep us from sleeping. We did all survive!
