2nd November

Slouched in Sunday Pan camp until about 10.00 taking in the view and reading etc. Fairly short drive to Passarge Pan camp, about 60 k’s. This camp is halfway along the Passarge Valley. Nearest other camp is 20 k’s away so total isolation. Didn’t see a soul all day which is how you want it. Just the birds singing and the jackals screaming. Hot, so very hot and a very warm breeze which cooled us a little. Clouds building and a few rumbles of thunder, then it rained. The first we have had. Cooled off by getting soaked. Spent the rest of the day reading and watching all the ground squirrels around the camp. They act very much like meerkats standing erect on their tails. Dinner around the camp fire.
