It has been said that "we are a nation of consumers", which can apply to the global attitude as a whole. We root too much value in possessions, thus the success of this holiday.

Outlandishly stupid are those that get out of the car at lion sightings.

Sightings can vary from little insects to feathered friends to general game to the big five....that's why I love wildlife.

Wildlife is not only found in National Parks........the cities have their own variety - usually 2 legged :twisted:

"(Long) legged woman dressed in black" were the lyrics from a Mungo Jerry song from my youth.
