I like it.

Though when the circus was in town we took a few photos of the elephants grazing with freeway flyovers in the background, to send our overseas friends.

Hi Wessel.It was hilarious. When we were leaving Jamaica for Botswana, we had prayers held for us for our safety. Our daughter's friends wanted to know if I was going to Africa as a Missionary or to sell insurance to people who were attacked by Lions! Elaina
