We have officially entered the rainy season of the southern portion of Africa. It started off with a bang, and a solid week straight of rain. The first night the tent flooded and the car continued to leak tremendously. Everything was wet. And the rain was relentless. In Swaziland it rained so much that some people’s homes were flooded and the rain plus unseasonably cold temps started to kill livestock. Nationally, by the time the rain and cold was over more than 7000 cows died, which for a country like Swaziland meant a whole percentage of their total cow population.
But currently, we are dry, our stuff is dry, the sun is shining and we have returned to hot temperatures again. Okay rainy season, we will try to stick you out!
