A second entry this week: We went on a short motorbike trip the past two days. We camped overnight in a lovely bushcamp. On the way to the ablution block I came across this sight in a tree: the nest of one of the many woodpecker species around our area. Unfortunately the inhabitants was not home, and sitting on their porch. That is sorry, for they are really beautiful birds…

My favourite landscape in South Africa is this one, taken from the bench on the road between Melkbosstrand and Bloubergstrand:

But that is 1000 miles away from me (1650 km precisely). So one of my favourite parts in our region to go on a ride- the road between Potgietersrust (Mokopane) past Hanglip to Marken:

Around our town this would be a typical landscape- quite dry, and thousands of different types of trees, birds and all the animals you saw in Disney’s Lion King…
