I'm well and back at Home - my Internet 'Device' is installed, it works but not much of an improvement over my old setup - needs some fine tuning ...
Anyway, it's not good enough to make me enthusiastic about surfing the web but at least I'm connected.
I've just come back from a camping visit to the Etosha Pans and, together with my Cape Town pics, have thousands of images to edit.
Here are a few from the road-trip to Cape Town:
Crossing the bridge over the Orange River at Noordoewer.
A travelling couple stop at a Roadside rest place in the northern Cape.
A lone tree on a curve going up a hill.
A woman hitching a ride - she's holding a ten Rand note in her hand to indicate that she's prepared to pay for the ride - many Truckers make money on the side from hikers ...
A colourful Truck dominates the view.
A ring-knuckled driver concentrates as he negotiates a sharp bend in the road, his passenger with a far-away look - in the back a dude sleeps and in the front, a young girl blows a bubble into space ...
I liked the cars curving over the hill and the telephone poles curving under.
"Skattebol" is a cuddly Afrikaans term of endearment - out of place when applied to these hefty Truckers.
Bathed in Yellow - a traffic controller at road works in the mountains.
Out of the mountains and onto the flat wheat-lands a few hundred kilos from Cape Town.
Well, here goes, my first post from Home ...
