Somewhere in the bush - #5

President Mugabe, instead of leveraging the event for longterm tourism growth, he gouged us. Gas prices 15 X for eclipse days. Saki’s jeep’s fillup was near $200.

Mission: To bag eclipse #5!! 

Posse: Michael Aisner, Saki Mafundikwa, Dr. Perry Hacking (nearby)

Contact: June 21, 2001

Path: Southern Africa to Madagascar

Eclipse Base: North of Harare in the bush   

Weather: Crystal clear

Stumbling over fresh ELEPHANT tracks in the bush raised one's pulse.  what do wild elephants do when the sun DISAPPEARs in the MIDDLE of the day?  

PERFECT DAY                      What a CREW!
