South African Caves

non-fiction, Photo No Comments »

2013 ~ In the spring of 2009 I had the incredible and fabulous opportunity to visit South Africa. The safaris, the wandering free leopards, elephants, lions, giraffes and many more animals that I’d only before seen in photos or zoos were moments of wonder…the safaris, along with the people and its history, literally changed me and South Africa grabbed part of my soul…

One experience however, woke me up to the fact that caves are not for me…at one point our group crawled on hands and knees through a very narrow passage…in front of my was a woman I did not know…in this teeny tiny tunnel, this woman decided to stop. It was beyond my control…I took my hand and shoved her rear end and firmly asked her to keep moving…once out, she shared with me that she had just done the same thing to a person in front of her…we got a good laugh out of the whole thing and both of us made a vow that this cave “tour” was our last : )
