Travel Photo of the Day (March 24)

At The Elephant Valley lodge in the Chobe region in Botswana there was a watering hole not too far off from the grounds.  While sitting outside having lunch I watched this elephant get a drink.  It was one of the best lunches I’ve ever had.  At first I was pretty content to take in the scenery, then the elephant approached and it made my day.  I really need to get back to Africa!

    I find it interesting how much the scenery makes food taste better. My favorite lunch spot was sitting on a ledge behind a waterfall at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I want to go back to Africa, too, just fyi. Thanks for sharing
