My Brother’s Keepers.
Vervet monkeys perch and played on this 700 year old fig tree in the Sabi Sands. I have never seen such a majestic tree!
The elementary school at which I attended 1st-4th grade had a lot of those classrooms that used sliding dividers as walls, so you could open the divider and turn two classrooms into one larger room. In second grade, all the kids in our grade got together once a week in one of those combined rooms to watch a film. We had VCRs, but usually the film would be on a reel projector, or possibly even a slide/filmstrip projector accompanied by a really crappy-quality audio tape or record. Our teachers would show us absolutely anything that they could get their hands on, and most of the films seemed to be from the 60s and 70s. I distinctly remember one b&w film about a gypsy girl who was ashamed to admit to her high school boyfriend that she didn’t have a permanent home to live in. I also remember a film about dune buggy safety, which went into great detail about the best ways to navigate large desert dunes. Take in mind that we lived in Kentucky, and the nearest desert was 1500 miles away, and we were 8 years old.
