This photo was taken at the border crossing between Zambia and Botswana. It was my first true African border crossing. When we arrived in Zambia a couple of days before, our passports were checked at the airport, which is why I don’t count it as my first African border crossing. I was a little intimidated at this checkpoint since right before my turn, the official was yelling at the person in front of me. I couldn’t understand what was said and I wasn’t looking forward to getting yelled at. However, I passed and was given permission to enter Botswana. And no one yelled at me.
