For many years, the country was part of the United Kingdom. It became independent in 1968 and is now ruled by a king. The king has a lot of power in the country.
Kyoko and I decided to visit this small kingdom to celebrate Christmas. As of the people are Christian, they celebrate the holiday.
My favorite memory of this trip was a visit to the Royal National Park that was once used as a hunting ground for the king and his family. As in other countries in the south of Africa, visitors to the park can drive their own vehicles. This was a little difficult in this park as the roads were in bad condition. I was nervous that we would become stuck in the mud and then be attacked by the hungry animals in the park!
