Senegal and The Gambia

I am visiting the above on a cruise next February and wondered whether it is really necessary to have all the jabs

In the days when we went on group safaris one of our fellow travellers asked if he would see penguins (in Tsavo). Still looking!

What, you mean you haven't seen the famous Sunbathing Penguins of Tsavo? ;-)

I have, on more than one occasion, been asked if I speak African.

No, f*ckstick; do you speak European? (I'm not usually so impolite in my replies but after about the tenth time of asking it gets a bit wearing!)

Re Kangaroos

My mates delight in telling people about when my random word generator (occasionally a totally wrong, sometimes surreally so, unrelated word jumps out) kicked in while we were on safari.

We were driving towards a cluster of the flat-topped acacia trees and right in the middle of them stood a giraffe, its head and half its neck sticking up through and above the flat, table like canopy of the trees, it looked so strange I commented on it, unfortunately what came out was 'Look at that kangaroo in those trees', our lovely driver / guide didn't make it any better by chuckling and saying wisely, 'You need to go to India to see them'

Haha - I'm not remotely surprised, given the amount of times it gets asked! I think every single one of my mzungu or mhindi friends has suffered that one, and I've a feeling it's even made its way onto Facebook. Legendary!

Doff - I actually laughed out loud at that one. That's one f*cking big kangaroo, excuse my language.
