10 Things to Do in Gaborone, Botswana

Two months ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Botswana for the first time. Not the Okavango Delta or Chobe National Park (the big safari destinations in Botswana) but rather the capital of Botswana, Gaborone. I was very busy right before the trip, so I didn’t get to do much more than a perfunctory online search of what there was to do in Gaborone (which yielded very sketchy information), but I tried not to worry about it, sure that I’d figure it out once my trip began. On the appointed day, I hopped onto a Fastjet flight to Johannesburg (I would connect to Gaborone … Continue reading 10 Things to Do in Gaborone, Botswana

African Barrick Gold Tour Day 2: Community Development Projects

Ads Board at Yaya & Sarit Centres

A while back, during a certain transition in my life, I realized that I needed to sell a number of household items—fast! I had moved many times in my life before and was skilled at separating what I needed to keep from what I needed to let go, but the difference this time was that, inspired by a friend of mine (the one mentioned in the Nail Buffing post), I had decided to sell most of what I needed to let go.
