This seems to be a South African thing while you’re on the highway. So the freedom of the open window, the fresh air, and the vision of the beautiful Limpopo scenery the whole way home in the distance was one of those Simple Things in life that I was grateful for on that adventurous afternoon; a special break that I had not ...
