In the Jeep
The “Sundowner” has become an essential part of life in parts of Botswana and South Africa, much as afternoon Tea is a part of British life. As the sun is setting, gin and tonics, with lime, are passed around. This tradition was maintained throughout our three days, whether in camp or on safari. The jeep came to a stop in a suitably scenic place, Face, having brought all the ingredients in an ice-chest, fixed the drinks, and gave one to Hobbes, Laura, and I. The kids got a soft drink of their choice. A good tradition. America could benefit from it.
