Botswana – Kasane

“Most Countries do not have much viral travel, particularly Botswana” random thought from a friend as we talk about the trip we just had to Kasane. I on the other hand have a different perspective.

When visiting a place like Kasane, right by the border.. You will need a few things checked on your checklist. Here’s one, Mosquito repellent and second, more Mosquito repellent.

We are good to go, if you are sleeping at a Lodge on the banks or just camping, the Hippos and the Elephants could be heard in a distance. Depending on what time you travel, most recommended time would be September down to October.

I got a chance to get on a Boat, for starters, an amazing one with a Braai facility, toilet and super speed. I think it is South African inspired. Hippos, Crocodiles, Bulls and thousands of kinds of Birds are the easiest to see also, did I mentioned we were attacked by Hippos? Awesomely put, our boat was just a little faster. I just said that a little faster because it was just as fast.

I remember beautiful Sunsets, Fishing in a Canoe and good food at the Lodge. If you are going down to Botswana and not sure how to spend two or three more days, than I can safely advise that you check it out. I did not spend a penny on this one, a friend of a friend took me ☺

Here are some of the images I managed to take.

Star Trek – Huge Fan

For Starters, I am back online now and blogging as well. My post will be Travel inspired as well but as for now; sharing interesting facts about one of the most coolest phrases from my favorite movie is in order.

The “Shinn” sign in Hebrew.. Explained! Huge credit to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vulcan_salute that being said, I do not own the texts that follow.

 

Vulcan salute

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Vulcan salute is a hand gesture consisting of a raised hand, palm forward with the fingers parted between the middle and ring finger, and the thumb extended. Often, the famous phrase “live long and prosper” is said after it. The salute was devised and popularised by Leonard Nimoy, who portrayed the half-Vulcan character Mr. Spock on the original Star Trek television series in the late 1960s.

Overview

The Vulcan salute first appeared in 1967 on the Star Trek second season opening episode, “Amok Time”. The gesture famously has a reputation for being difficult for some people to make without practice or the covert pre-positioning of the fingers, and actors on the original show reportedly had to position their fingers off-screen with the other hand before raising their hand into frame. This reputation may stem from variations in individuals’ manual dexterity. This reputation is parodied somewhat in the motion picture Star Trek: First Contact when Zefram Cochrane, upon meeting a Vulcan for the first time in human history, is unable to return the Vulcan salute gesture and instead shakes the Vulcan’s hand.

In his autobiography I Am Not Spock, Nimoy wrote that he based it on the Priestly Blessing performed by Jewish Kohanim with both hands, thumb to thumb in this same position, representing the Hebrew letter Shin (ש), which has three upward strokes similar to the position of the thumb and fingers in the salute. The letter Shin here stands for El Shaddai, meaning “Almighty (God)”. Nimoy wrote that when he was a child, his grandfather took him to an Orthodox synagogue. There he saw the blessing performed and

was very impressed by it.[1]

The accompanying spoken blessing, “live long and prosper”, (“dif tor heh smusma” in the Vulcan language as spoken in Star Trek: The Motion Picture) also appeared for the first time in “Amok

Time”, scripted by Theodore Sturgeon.[2] The less-known reply is

“peace and long life”, though it is sometimes said first, with “live long and prosper” as the reply. This format is similar to common Middle Eastern greetings (Salaam

alaykum in Arabic and Shalom aleikhem in Hebrew), meaning “peace be upon you”, and its reply, “upon you be peace”. An even more ancient variation can be found with the Ancient Egyptians: the blessing

ankh wedja seneb“, usually translated as “may he live, be prosperous, be healthy.”[3] William http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vulcan_salute1/34/4/2014Vulcan salute – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet contains the line, “Live and be prosperous: and farewell good fellow.”[4] [5] The phrase ‘live long’ first appeared in print in 1957 in Eric Frank Russell’s science fiction classic

‘Wasp’ where it was used both as a greeting and as a farewell by Earth’s deadly enemies, the Sirians.
