    Walked to the waterhole and saw 2 hippo's in the water as well as lots
    of Impala and different birds. Walking back we came across 3 blue-headed

    ... Today, the town seems sleepy, although the area still boasts of the longest active gold mine in the world. While in Barberton we did a short self guided historical walk and had a long visit with a lovely young woman coordinating a non profit jewellery training centre. We purchased a few pieces of silver jewellery designed by a renowned local artist but crafted by students at the school. In Barberton we stayed at Kloofhuis.

However, there was a small family of happy hippos in the water. ...

    January 27 to 30, 2014 In the opening paragraph of "Cry, the Beloved Country," Alan Paton wrote of hills "lovely beyond any singing of it," . He was describing the green foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains (Afrikaans for Dragon Mountains).

It is here where the ...

    Thursday 10th October 2013 Woke up 3.45am, couldn't get back to sleep so got up 20 minutes later, made a pot of tea and went outside to write yesterday's blog.
