South Africa Day 6 (part 2): Battlefields

Battlefields Lodge Hotel

This was an interesting hotel as my room was a reconstructed silo so I was sleeping in the round! After our return from Talana Museum, young schoolchildren came to the hotel to put on a performance for us. We were assured that the small collection made at the end would buy shoes and books for the children. Later I went in search of the weaver birds that I knew were nesting in the hotel grounds. I had seen them on several occasions but I now had time to stop and watch them at work. The males do all the nest building. If the female does not like his work, she destroys it and he has to start all over again.
