The power of suggestion has a tremendous influence on us. When spending time in one of Malawi’s game parks straining your eyes to quickly pick out animals in the distance, one can also imagine animals where there are none. River rocks can be the heads of hippopotamus, while tree limbs seem to imitate imaginary snakes.
Then there is the time in northern Malawi when we came around a curve and directly in the line of sight in the distance was a massive rock that looked just like an elephant!
The Malawians actually call this location, “Elephant Rock.” Go figure!
