Possibly the Rain Dance which had been scheduled for their last evening alerted the heavenly rainmakers to action! The Rain Dance itself was blessed with large drops and completed to a deluge.
Three of our KATS, and a cousin, helped with cooking, firemaking and general errand running. They worked hard, were reliable and fun. I am totally enamoured and proud of their participation.
The Kalahari had been hot and dry to the extreme. Tensions mount and sadly solace is often sought in western dominated ways rather than ancestral.
