Also, everyone is sleeping in tents out in Okavango Delta, Botswana. At night it is so black that you can not see your own hand in front of you. The animals get really active at this time and walk about even near the tents where they are all sleeping. Before heading off to sleep they write in their journals while all this is going on. They write with dis-ease because they know that at any time they could be killed by any one of these great beasts.

"Everyone sees things differently. That's why if you sent ten people on the same trip, you'd probably hear ten different stories when they got back. Everyone has different interests and different opinions about things." - by Gannon

"TRAVELER'S NOTE: When you arrive in a new place, it's not always a good idea to walk around and talk to people on your own. Some places, to be honest, are downright dangerous, and you could end up in a lot of trouble if you venture into the streets by yourself. It's always smart to research your destination before you travel. If you take the time to educate yourself, you will know which destinations are safe to explore and which ones are not." - by Gannon

The next book I've chosen to read is a book called "Travels with Gannon and Wyatt." It is written by Patti Wheeler and Keith Hemstreet. It is an adventure book for teens. The setting is in beautiful Africa. It should be exciting. I'll keep you posted.

Wow! A lot has happened in this book. I am almost finished with reading it. As soon as I'm done reading it, I will write my review. I will tell you what the book is about and what I liked and did not like about this book. At this point I can tell you that there are some things about these two characters, Dexter and Emma, that I would not do. I will keep you posted.

Okay, a lot has happened at this point in the story. Emma breaks up with her live-in boyfriend after he proposes marriage to her. This leaves the live-in boyfriend (Ian) totally devastated and he finds it hard to move on. Then she starts up a year long relationship with her boss who is a married man. She breaks off with him because she's not in love with him. Her boss is angry with her because she doesn't want to continue the affair anymore. She winds up quitting her job at the school after failed attempts to get her book published which she realizes is now her true passion.
Let me say this, if I were in Emma's shoes, first, I would not date my boss or a guy I didn't love. These two guys are crazy about her and it is as if she used them to pass the time waiting for Dexter. She's not thinking in terms of the long run. She's thinking in terms of good-for-right-now in her decisions to date a guy. Dexter is the one she secretly loves but he does not feel the same way about her. He is in love with another woman. The whole thing is just a mess. So classic!

Well so far in the story of the book One Day, Dexter's mother has died. He is a popular TV Presenter whose popularity is starting to take a nose dive. He did not go to college and he is a drunk. Emma is an English School Teacher. She is having great success in her school plays. She lives with a guy who loves her but she does not feel the same way about him. Dexter and Emma went out on a dinner date and it was a disaster. They had an argument and Emma broke off the "friendship."
