Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. --- Mark Twain

Botswana, Maun

So – time to write again.

The first issue of attraction is about 90 kilometers from the border of Namibia –Botswana - Tsodilo Hills - which is Botswana's first and the only UNESCO World Heritage Site. Worth to visit. I turn to the side road and give a lift to four locals who are standing by the road and waving their hands and it comes out that they wish to go to the same village. Later I learned that there is no public transport to the village. So there is 40 kilometers of extremely dusty and slightly uneven village road, then there is the village and next to it - the mountains.

Should be the right place. No signpost or any label in sight, but the locals show me the right direction. A sandy trail takes to the main entrance. There is not anybody there. But the gate was unlocked and fresh tracks of car wheels on the road – what else to do than open the gate and drive on.

About 5 kilometers away there is a small museum, an overnight site and some guides waiting for the visitors.
