A working tourist

Posted: November 1, 2007 in Fun, jobo

Sometimes i hate my job for keeping me away from home for such lengthy periods, kwanza when i think of Ms Xs i get kidogo crazy & start drafting a resignation letter…..

But it has its reward though – i get to go to places i never dreamt i would ever set a foot in this lifetime. This week i have been touring our upcountry offices/agencies here in BW…… Today i flew out to Maun. Now if you have ever been to Mandera or Lowdar you will understand how hot this place is – yaani we are talking kindu 35 degree celcius – how people live here is beyond me! Its a main tourist attraction for BW because of okavango delta and several other national parks

I didnt get to see much of nothing coz it was airport-to-office-back-to-airport again for me! Drat! Kwanza vile i had offers to be shown around…… anyhooooo kazi ifanywe

On my flight back…. amid a thousand thoughts i took a moment to enjoy the variable forms and shapes of clouds……

I snapped afew…


 What are these called?


And these?


3N what do these remind you of?


Lovely huh?


Closer view


Then i noticed how the plane’s engine needed a paint job


This really got me thinking……. what the hell was Charles Glass thinking about as he brew Castle lager back in 1895?? It reminded of my Chem 302 (industrial Chemistry) project write up about beer brewing……story for another day….. no medal for guessing i am not sober…..


Got a glimpse of the sun as it disappeared huko…


Then 1.20 hours after take off, Gabz was visible…



Is it true that vegetarian women dont moan or groan and are silent during sex because they cannot believe a piece of meat is giving them so much pleasure?!!

Furahiday na wikendi njema people! 

Remember Super ako na yake, jee nyinyi??

    35 C is not so bad sometimes in our place we hit 38 at some times of the year.

    38?? Eish you go jobo in a vest au nini?
