Big things and Little things. On our recent African wildlife safari we saw a Little lizard; a Big and Little elephant and a family of Big white-horned rhino, having a midday rest in the shade. (sadly, two of the rhinos were killed last week by poachers).

In Africa, on a recent wildlife safari, we also visited a Masai village in Tanzania. Here's the tiny school, dirt floor and constructed with branches, mud-dung and animal hide. One desk, one small blackboard and about twenty children aged 2 to 6 years old.
