So many entertaining things happen in my life in Swaziland. These are the moments I will want to remember because they make me laugh, and they show insight into my daily routine. These moments are often hard to photograph and usually last only a minute or two. I will start sharing them with you in this occasional series.
I was waiting for the khumbi to Mbabane this morning at the gate to Lidwala, one of the hostels here. Lidwala is located on the mountainside where there are occasional vervet monkey sightings.
I saw a whole family this morning with a large father and a tiny baby. There were six monkeys together checking out the scene from a rock near the road.
The father approaches the road, checks for traffic, and then crosses. The members of his family follow suit, with each pausing to check for traffic before and during crossing. It’s incredible how they have adapted to life with cars.
