Botswana & Namibia: Their People Challenge finished on Thursday, 27 Mar 2014 As we move (roughly) south thru Africa, this challenge will cover only the countries of Botswana and Namibia. I hope that many members have been to the game parks here, but for this challenge, you'll have to show us photos of the people. I am unsure about how many people have been to these countries, so I don't think we'll hit the 35-entry maximum. If we do, then I'll probably add more spaces, so everyone who wants can enter. Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules...including voting WITHIN THE FIRST SIX DAYS of the challenge.
