It's Dark... Don't Look Out The Window
I had a quick brekkie and departed on the small coach that would take me out to the destination near were my trek would start tomorrow. Looking out the window during the day I was so excited. I couldn't stop 'ahhhing' and 'ohhhing' as we drove past numerous African animals. I was amazed by their size, patterns and elegance. Looking at the puzzling shaped trees I got my sketch pad out and tried to draw them as we wiggled down the windy roads that made the trip take forever! Dark soon approached and I watched the sunset in the savanna. It was nothing like the sunsets we get at home. It was beautiful and looked as though it swallowed the whole plain. Once it was gone though the whole 'exciting' atmosphere disappeared and I was a bit scared for my safety. I had been warned by many people not to be out and about during dark. I shut my curtains as best I could and sat with my eyes shut until we arrived at my motel. I quickly ran inside, locked the door and got ready for bed.
