Maun

A journal entry from: July 08 - Jan 09

I took a 12 hour local bus ride from Gaborone to Maun - which is just near the Okavango Delta. I stayed for a few nights and took a canoe ride on the delta and the next day a motorboat ride on a nearby river.

The most memorable moment of my time in Maun was hearing traditional drumming and singing as we went up the river. We then came across a group of men in traditional costume dancing by the riverbank. It was quite gobsmacking until we noticed the film crew just behind them and realised that the music was being piped through speakers. I hope we don't (and kind of hope we do) end up floating past as a suspension of reality error in some upcpoming movie.
