Poise

Only in Africa will you find a peacock in all it's magnificent feathered glory, strutting proudly across a traffic jam packed street at rush hour.

Head held high, neck craned to look down it's nose at it's honking surrounding, disdainfully arrogant, it crosses the road unfazed as grown men stare out of their cars and point and laugh.

I think there's a lesson in there somewhere.

This guy, theatre type, told me that when you're performing on the street, if you can get the public to stop and stare for more than 5 seconds, you've won your audience.

Lets just say the ones who laughed first stopped and stared...

Junket: Mostly tourism or languid story assignments (say covering a music concert) that journos get, when they are taken for free abroad. :)
