Pictures from Shadowing and Cultural Village
This is main road in Nata, the village I visited a couple weeks ago. Nata is at a crossroads between three of the largest towns in Botswana: Maun, Kasane, and Francistown. A lot of travelers come through Nata, so the main strip has a handful of gas stations and a couple restaurants (but the menus are really more fast food-esque).
This is a picture from the cultural village we visited last weekend. The dancing was spectacular. Unlike other African dance traditions, the dancers make their own beats. They do not use drums or other instruments, which makes the dancing even more exciting because the sounds are all man-made.
