For the One You Love...

Posted on March 1st, 2012

Tuesday, February 14th was a special day. I made heart shaped cookies that Elise took to school for her class and also for the teachers. It seemed a lot of people were wearing pink and red. At the local hotels, the tables were being set for a romantic evening with candles, flowers, and red table cloths or centerpieces. The stores boasted clothes, dishes, and sweets "for the one you love.” Yes, Valentine’s Day is alive and well here in Botswana.

In the late afternoon, after work, Keith took his two valentines, Elise and me for tea at a local hotel to celebrate and to enjoy the beautiful river view. While drinking tea, we watched the mischievous monkeys as they leaped closer and closer trying to steal our tea, waffles and cake. The waitress asked if we would allow her to remove the sugar packets as they are an enticement
to the monkeys. They love sugar.

So, ended a productive day, enjoying a peaceful or rather fairly peaceful tea fending off the
monkeys and visiting on the banks of the Chobe River. We hope you had as delightful a day!
