Botswana, Africa

Nathaniel, my ever-adventurous brother, spent his Spring Break in Botswana, Africa (due north of South Africa). He was working on research for his senior thesis which involves using ground penetrating radar to map tree root systems so as to gain insights into the savannah ecosystems of Botswana.

He was going to end his visit to Botswana with a safari, but his tire blew on the way, so he ended up investigating a crowd of crocodiles instead. The locals apparently loved Nate and were thrilled when he gave one of them his John Deere hat, and another of them an old Toyota truck t-shirt!
