Happy Kids

Location: Kalahari Desert

Today was my kind of day. We went to a small Bushman village and met many of its residents. Everyone was kind, but I especially loved the children. They were so animated and excited to meet us. Our blond hair is pretty unusual to them! We took them lollipops, which they were excited about, of course. What kid doesn’t like candy?

Along with showing us around where they live, they sang and danced for us and tried to teach us one of their favorite songs. Wyatt and I were not quick to get the song down, but I think they knew how much we loved meeting them and hearing them sing.

I could have stayed for days.
