Turned out that Wifi connections were a lot more costly in time and price than I anticipated. Technology can be more precious than we give credit for.
We visited many places that I couldn't upload but will attempt to do now. Mostly I felt the highest priority was being with family, especially Lucas who was the centre of attention.
We visited the Apartheid Museum and didn't dare take photographs inside although the events documented and photographed were very powerful. The external structure is strong and imposing - built to last and will not be broken just as the spirit of the African people was never broken in spite of the terrible violence of white colonialism.
Tony and Karen visited the Lion Park and brought back some fabulous photos.
We had a weekend in the village of Clarens near the edge of the Drakensburg Mountains.
We met some of Karen and Simon's neighbours. Came home feeling more inspired by the spirit of strong people who are the present and future of South Africa. Left a small herb garden that Tony planted for posterity.
