So, Is That What You Call a Getaway? Tell Me What You Got Away With.

Nae was robbed on Friday while out doing a dolphin survey with another girl. She didn't give Mom a lot of details, probably because she didn't want to scare us, but the not knowing is pretty scary, too. Did they have knives? guns? threaten them in some other way? Are they people she had seen before or known?
What she did say is they took her camera, and the equivalent of about $50 U.S., but not her wallet, and also her headlamp. The police came by to question her multiple times and told her they hoped this didn't put her off visiting South Africa again. She is trying to make light of the situation and says at least she doesn't have to do dolphin surveys again for awhile and that they will never have to go back to the spot again.
Thank God she is alive! Thank God they didn't take much and did not harm her or her friend. Someone was looking out for her that day. Maybe now she will heed our and all of our South African friends' warnings to be vigilant while there.
