The Oldupai Gorge in Tanzania was fascinating. This is the resting place of Lucy. The place where the earliest know evidence of completely bipedal locomotion was recorded for all time in the volcanic mud. This is where the dig made famous by the Leakeys is still ongoing.
It was amazing to be walking in the footsteps of Grok and Grokelle across this magnificent landscape and get a feel for what it would have taken to survive there.
While there I visited with a tribe of bushmen named the Wahadzabe. These are Grok's great, great some-odd grandchildren. Wonderful people. They taught me how to shoot a bow and how to make fire with a stick. Making dik-dik jerky with the guys and digging up bush potatoes with the ladies. Fascinating stuff.
