It’s not often you have to abandon Plan A (in this case Location A) because a bull elephant wants to feed under the same ilala palm you’re doing your photo shoot under…. What a special (and welcome!) photo bomber! I must admit I was too busy making sure Chloe and Hans were safe to snap a frame with him in – but he makes an appearance in the blog, crossing the road and giving us a wary eye. We retreated graciously and surrendered the floor.
Chitenge and bubbles in the morning, elephants and ilala palms in the afternoon. Tear-jerking speeches under a bright Zambezi sky – (sentimentally and sidesplittingly hilariously) and some dance floor action to warm your heart.
Chloe and Hans you were both so lovely and it was really a pleasure spending the day with you two.
What a wonderful day and what a wonderful group of people who surrounded you.
