Botswana's 50th Independece Day


On September 30, Botswana celebrated its 50th independence! We are so thankful to live in such a beautiful countries. I love the meaning of their flag "The blue represents water, the white-black-white bands depict the racial harmony of the people. They are inspired by the coat of the zebra, the national animal." Let's all live together in harmony no matter the colour of our skin! 

Brent went on a bike ride on Independence Day and got some great shots:
3 chiefs (Dikgosi) statues
The three chiefs traveled to Great Britain in 1895 to ask Queen Victoria to separate the Bechuanaland Protectorate fromCecil Rhodes's British South Africa Company and Southern Rhodesia (present-day Zimbabwe). Permission was granted, and meant that the Batswana remained under direct British rule until independence in the 1966
