Thanks again, everyone.

Yesterdays "sighting" was not at all pleasant. O/ The joys of living in the bush. :shock:

I got home from work, only to find that my house, luckily only the kitchen and lounge area, had been raided by Baboons. @#$ They managed to force a door open. Total destruction and not one piece of any food stuff left. The smell was horrendous, a mixture of baboon feces and curry. (insert puking smiley)

I tried to clean the mess and figure out what I could still save and what had to be discarded. So, today I am at home and I have a maid here to help get the place livable again.

Here are a few cellphone pics of the devastation that Hurricane Chacma caused...
