We traveled six hours yesterday leaving the desert and headed back to Maun for our transition and regrouping to go to the Delta. Students took their first exam this morning then had the rest of the day off. Most of them headed to town for the afternoon. In the morning we head out at 8:00am for another road trip which won't be so windy as we have an enclosed bus to take us to Tsodillo Hills and then overnight in Shakawe with our ultimate destination the Delta where we will stay for seven nights.

Students prepared questionnaires for a survey to obtain information from residents of Eretsha, a remote village in northern Botswana in the Okavango Delta
