Hop aboard and I will take you on a mini tour of some of the "hotels" that Kelsey stayed in while adventuring in Africa.

Before we begin, these pictures really touched my heart. The next time you go to your fridge for a cold glass of water...think about these pictures...

These kids were from the local village and THIS is their water supply...

which comes from this little hole behind these sticks! This really makes me realize all of the things that I take for granted on a daily basis.

On to hotels...Kelsey stayed in some very interesting places in Africa. Here is where she stayed while they were in Kruger National Park. It almost looks like a little house, doesn't it?

Next was a hostel in Swaziland. Check out the sign!

Here are the bathrooms at her campsite in Swaziland. They spent 2 weeks out here camping in tents and doing research on animals.

This was the main hut where she said they cooked all of their meals and ate.

Check out this shower. You have to look closely but you can see the shower head off the top of the long pipe. She said there was an opening in the pipe where you filled it with paraffin, then lit the paraffin to heat the water. Bear in mind that it is winter in Swaziland and it usually was in the 40's at night. I would have to have lots of paraffin in order to take a shower here!
The advantage to this outdoor shower.... Here is the view! Kelsey said that she could watch all kinds of animals around the river while she washed her hair!

Next up were these neat beehive huts!

Isn't that door handle the best.

After the beehives, they moved on to Mozambique where she stayed in these bamboo huts along the Indian Ocean.

She said they only were allowed to have electricity for a couple of hours a day.

I think the view may have been worth the lack of modern conveniences!

Tomorrow, I want to show you the amazing sunset pictures! I hope that you can join me. Happy Saturday and don't forget to make it silly!
