Toto, I don’t think we’re in the Hamptons anymore

Scenes from some of this summer’s weekend getaways

Sunday afternoon with a friend’s family in Serowe, one of Botswana’s largest villages (more like a small town — actually, a large town by Botswana standards).

Pumpkin and sorghum porridge — not my usual Sunday brunch, but yum.

Bonfire and barbecue on the grounds of Khama Rhino Sanctuary, a protected area dedicated to conserving the White Rhino and re-introducing the Black Rhino into Botswana.

Trying to load cow parts onto the back of an uncooperative donkey (I think it goes without saying that by “trying” I mean “watching other people try while staying out of the way”).
