The most recent new country to visit idighardware.com is Botswana. Believe it or not, I have been to Botswana – twice. It was a while ago, but I’ve been kind of nutty about doors for a long time, so I hauled out my photo albums to find a Botswana door.
Yeah, right. There was not a single door in any of my photos – not even in the background, unless you count a tent flap, or the door on our safari truck. I have plenty of photos from Botswana – elephants, hippos, crocodiles, giraffes…you name it. I have photos of my friends and I in mokoros (dugout canoes) in the Okovango Delta, me giving haircuts with rented clippers at the local watering hole, and a donkey sleeping in the road in front of the Maun airport. I have the photo at right of me with a random baby that I met in a tiny village of huts. But no doors.
But according to many sources, the capital of Botswana – Gaborone, is one of the fastest-growing cities in Africa. It’s only a matter of time before someone from Gaborone sends me a photo of a door-related code violation. 🙂
