BOTSWANA | Tuesday, 25 February 2014 | Views [546]

Dr. M. really put some thought into making this opportunity thorough for me. Along with the following proposed itinerary there's hopes of visiting the diamond mine and police station. Much to my surprise, Dr. M. enlightened me about how different the mining industry is in Gabo and that it is not "blood diamonds". The possible visit to the police station stems from research work she is doing on traffic psychology (automobile).
