    Another truism is "Everything in Africa is either thorny, horney, or charges." courtesy of my PH Jaco.

    “Hold thumbs” as we would say keep your fingers crossed.
    “Drink your pills” we would say take your pills.
    My favorite has already been mentioned “We’ll make a plan”
    Many many more that I can’t think of now but Africa certainly has its charms.

    Agree on this one. Our trackers in Caprivi were notorious for telling us it’s not far meaning we might make it there by dark!

    “Be careful what you ask for. This is Africa, not Wisconsin”.

    John Sharp to me, when I said I didn’t like hunting in warm weather, but rather preferred cool/cold temps and clouds.

    “polepole”. This was the first swahili I learned and it means “slowly”. I said it 5000 times to the trackers. #FatLivesMatter
