    Aaah, Shootin' the breeze! Familiar like wearing your favourite pair of boots. What a great way to make a long Monday afternoon short. Thanks, Camo.

    Thanks burger!

    Feels good to shooting the breeze again.

    Thanks Camo! Great that you are shooting the breeze again.

    Interesting history and stories. Being chased by a wounded buffalo in a thicket and then trampled by the beast is something from a nightmare! Amazing confidence in standing his ground when faced by charges of wild game -- I am guessing Patrick must exude this confidence in the bush if he manages to get his whole group to stay calm and not run.

    Interesting note by Patrick on the civil war where he mentions the non-involvement of people not in uniform in the fighting. I would have thought things would be more partisan than that, or at least that people would try defend their villages. He made it sound like the villagers scatter into the bush and let Renamo & Frelimo fight it out then they return afterwards and carry on -- even though some of them are armed (albeit with hunting rifles).

    Hi mostlyharmless.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Yes I got a distinct impression that Patrick had a lot more to share, however for a many guests, when you stick a microphone in there face they clam up!

    Part of the trick of interviewing is trying to put the guest at ease, without encroaching on their "personal space"

    Personally if i only had a hunting rifle with a limited supply of ammo, running away into the bush would seem like option #1.

    Sure. That does make a lot of sense. I suppose (in my ignorance of such matters) I would expect more of an evacuation strategy/emergency plan, whereas a "running away into the bush" sounds like it would go hard with young children/old folks. I like to think I would "march" my family out of such a situation -- ok, run, crawl whatever, but try stay together, carry the little ones/old ones, perhaps have rallying points with neighbours, try provide some cover, etc...
