For The Love Of Music: 23 July 2021

Good day friends,

Here is my song for today. Hope you enjoy it.

You & I – One Direction

I figured it out
I figured it out from black and white
Seconds and hours
Maybe they had to take some time

I know how it goes
I know how it goes from wrong and right
Silence and sound
Did they ever hold each other tight like us?
Did they ever fight like us?

You and I, we don’t wanna be like them
We can make it ’til the end
Nothing can come between you and I
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us
No, nothing can come between you and I
Oh, you and I

I figured it out
Saw the mistakes of up and down
Meet in the middle
There’s always room for common ground

I see what it’s like
I see what it’s like for day and night
Never together
‘Cause they see things in a different light like us
They never tried like us

You and I, we don’t wanna be like them
We can make it ’til the end
Nothing can come between you and I
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us
(Two of us, two of us, two of us, two of us)

‘Cause you and I
We don’t wanna be like them
We can make it ’til the end
Nothing can come between you and I
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us
No, nothing can come between you and I
You and I
Oh, you and I

Oh, you and I
We could make it if we try, you and I
Oh, you and I

Thank you for your ongoing support and taking the time to have a look at my post and listen to the my song for the day.

Music is the universal language of mankind.”

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Keep Singing the day away…

Throwback Thursday: 22 July 2021

Good day,

Well, today we are going back to 12 September 2013 when we visited The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. We got up just after 4:00am that morning and we left around 5:00am. It was about a 3 hour drive to the park from Upington. I did not know the road and I remember that it was very dark and cold that morning. We were so excited about our visit to the park that it felt like we were driving forever.

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a large wildlife preserve and conservation area in southern Africa . The park straddles the border between South Africa and Botswana and comprises two adjoining national parks:

  1. Kalahari Gemsbok National Park in South Africa
  2. Gemsbok National Park in Botswana

The total area of the park is 38,000 square kilometers (15,000 sq mi). Approximately three-quarters of the park lies in Botswana and one-quarter in South Africa. Kgalagadi means “place of thirst.”  In December 2015, media reports claimed that rights for gas-fracking in more than half of the Botswana portion of the park had been sold. The Botswana government later refuted these reports.

The park is located largely within the southern Kalahari Desert. The terrain consists of red sand dunes, sparse vegetation, occasional trees, and the dry riverbeds of the Nossob and Auob Rivers. The rivers are said to flow only about once per century. However, water flows underground and provides life for grass and Camelthorn trees growing in the river beds. The rivers may flow briefly after large thunderstorms.

The park has abundant, varied wildlife. It is home to large mammalian predators such as Lions, Cheetahs, African Leopards, and Hyenas. Migratory herds of large herbivores such as Blue wildebeest, Springbok, Eland, and Red Hartebeest also live and move seasonally within the park, providing sustenance for the predators. More than 200 species of bird can be found in the park, including Vultures and raptors such as Eagles, Buzzards, and Secretary birds.
