Welcome to South Africa! In an effort to shake off some of our jetlag (with Mango snoring on the plane for the entire 15 hour flight, we didn't get much sleep. Who knew Ambien came in a dosage the size of a basketball?), Asta and I decided to go for a walk around Max's estate. Needless to say, Lacie insisted on coming along, yapping the whole way.
Well, you can just imagine the pitch her shrieking took on when we stumbled onto one of South Africa's legendary diamond fields! Max had told us we could help ourselves, so Asta set about finding a perfectly matched pair for some earrings, whilst I looked for a suitable trinket to soothe Rosie, who is none too pleased that I've gone to South Africa without her...
Lacie, on the other paw, went all Liz Taylor on us!
Just look at her haul! She claims she's out to bag the African Big Five - round, marquis, pear-shaped, emerald and cushion-cut!
She was so frenzied when we got back to Max's house, she started yammering on and on about diamond fields to Tanner who —no surprise — got all confused and roused Joey from a hard-earned nap (Mango's continued snoring at the house had roused several curious lady Cape buffalo) to go looking for this:
Needless to say, Joey was NOT amused.
For our daily adventures, be sure to visit Mango!
