More Elephants and off to Ouagadougou

Having seen the elephants,we lazed about in the ridiculous heat,various people came and went trying to spot these wonderful creatures, but with no luck,including a very chatty young French girl who had been to this park several times,but had no luck and was cheesed off that we had seen them within a couple of hours of our arrival. This morning as we were leaving this lovely spot and were giving the night watchman a lift home(complete with bicycle  strapped to the Landy roof) a mile  up the road he suddenly points toward the bush and there were the elephants.

Abandoned car,got camera and within 50 meters there they were,but despite them  being so close,it was still hard to get any decent pictures.family of eight (?) including two babies and several juveniles (Michael say’s it’s because he watched so many Tarzan films,that he spotted them so easily!) All this and before 8:00 am !

Arrived in Ouagadougou,applied for Ghanaian visa’s at the embassy without a problem,infact we were quite happy to sit in this air-conned room all day,but sadly had to  leave,found an arty place to stay in town called Yiri Suma,very unusual,with pretty garden and plenty of African arts and crafts about, for which this city is known for.
