After sweet talking the kitchen staff into letting me heat up water (thank god Sesotho is a cousin to Setswana) I the mothers milk (aka coffee) while overlooking a beautiful landscape.
I decided to go on a morning hike--the great thing about Malealea is that they hire villagers to do the tours as part of their community trust program. My trusty guide Lucky and I set off. We were going to do a '5 hour hike' to the Bushman paintings and the waterfall.
Throughout the hike Lucky would wait patiently as I snapped photos and tell me about little cultural tidbits.
A few views from our journey
Our hike ended up to be more a 6 hour journey...I must say... Hiking up hill and down hill on yogurt and cereal is a recipe for feeling faint...and bless Lucky's heart he patiently waited for me...and fetched me water when I ran out.
My dirty and sore feet are propped up on a log and I am drinking a Maluti (for you Granny!)
They have a saying in Lesotho which is peace rain and prosperity...here is to peace and prosperity!
