On our last 3 day safari excursion, we visited an elephant sanctuary. Seeing the elephants in the wild is so different than when you’re up close and personal with them.
See how I’m hugging this elephant? My smile says this is an amazing experience while my stance says think of an emergency escape plan quick in case this thing goes berserk.
After the sanctuary, we had a 6 hour drive back to Johannesburg and it’s officially work again on Monday. On our way back, we made quick pit stop and I figured I’d use an ATM machine to get some cash since J has been my sugar mama the entire time I’ve been here. So what I learned here is that the ATM machine is timed. If you don’t enter in your information quick enough, the damn machine will swallow your card because it thinks that it’s a stolen card.
The irony of this. Long story short, my card was somehow skimmed and now stolen. THANK GOD my bank credited me back for everything. Someone just made out with over $1000 which is 3 months salary for some here in So. Africa.
I’m feeling frazzled, but the bank is handling everything so there’s nothing that I can do. I just feel violated. Probably how the elephant felt this morning when he was forced to hang with me.
Yeah, yeah…trying to keep some kind of sense of humor despite all this.
