!Xaus Lodge

MIER, NC – Today is our 3-day adventure to !Xaus Lodge in the Kalahari, in the section of the park administered by the bushmen. The exclamation point is one of the made-up alphabet sounds for the clicks of the bushmen. The sound is not easy to explain - a "click" followed quickly by "khouse", where the "kh" is somewhat guttural. Most of us had a hard time with the click sounds.
