A Shortcut To Mushrooms

The rainy season is in full swing here in Mwanza with a downpour at some point every day at the moment. The once parched land is lush and green and plants are in full flower and birds in breeding mode.

On the borders of our garden all of a sudden mushrooms have appeared overnight – I doubt these are edible and certainly I’m not taking the risk.


The Kiswahili for mushroom is uyoga and many mushrooms is uyoga wengi.
Sadly it’s not ‘fungi wengi’ which would have been cool.

An excuse to include a clip from one of my favorite films. Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring

Weekly Photo Challenge: Chobe Trio

A submission to this week’s photo challenge  on the theme of Trio.

Last summer we spent a day in Chobe Game Reserve in Northern Botswana – you can find out more by clicking the link

We spent the morning on a River Cruise and the Afternoon on a Game Drive. Both were fantastic trips with amazing wildlife.

Early on our boat trip we came across these three Impala drinking from the river.Chobe (110)

Here are some other Trios from our day.
