School of Shongololo

Today Mila and I went searching for shongololos. Shongololos are a kind of large centipede. They are black with either red, orange or yellow legs. It’s pretty easy to find them, and before long, we each had a small ball of frightened shongololo.

I am now doing Wordly Wise. My shongololo is scrambling on my book. What a laugh!

    Btw a shongololo is a millipede (not centipede which has fewer legs and nasty bite)

    Hi everyone!!!

    I’m sorry I replied so late. We haven’t had any internet for a couple of weeks.

    Today we saw a really cool chameleon on the road. The way it walks is hilarious!!!!!!!
    We are learning bits of Portuguese. It’s a lot like Spanish. It’s pretty easy.
    When Mila got bitten by the meerkat, we thought the meerkat (Flower) might have rabies. Don’t worry, it didn’t!
    Last night we stayed in a beautiful lodge. There was going to be a cyclone so all the staff got sent home. The two managers (Neville and Wendy) had four great dogs that we played with all day.
    We have videos of the last week on the blog.
