welcome to south africa! yeah. after a ten-hour ride on the plane. The beginning of the beginning.
On my way down town from Johannesburg airport!
Wide and long roads
Still long roads
Advertisment. Africa uses alot of such cables for electricity..even after 7 hours I still see the extended line of cables!
single-storey houses..no more highrise buildings.
the houses seems to face everywhere! very confusing. might just lose your way on your way back.
Town - Chicken King (africa's kfc?)
certainly no. old school kfc! woo hoo!
okay. Mr Biltong --> preserved meat (beef, ostrich, mutton)
Random shot off the sky.
trying to look stupid. But then again, the jacket itself is retarded, just look at how you can zip yourself up all the way.
A glimpse of urbanised african city.
"Children crossing ahead" sign never fails to change.
SPUR HOUSE. where I stopped for lunch.
er. Kopi shop. It means photoCOPY shop though. Took me a while to figure out it wasn't the kopi shop I was looking out for. wth
First sunrise at base camp. Reached the night before. 7 hours ride from Johhanesburg.
Clouds moving away..rained a few days ago. and yeah, it rains every 2-3 weeks.
Still the sunrise. =]
and I've my first sunset in south africa...
sunset from out in the fields..
another shot at it. you're amazing.
beautiful. isn't it?
me in the attire. yes, it is freezing.
Out on the mountains and one week into the exercise. hensley n me trying to cook dinner before the sun sets. isn't the stove nice?
Feels good to bring our very own campbell mushroom soup. lol. it rocks.
2 weeks into the exercise..right...who wants some "EET SUM MOR" ?!
we reckon the rain was coming..been here for more than twenty days already...
Huge cloud moving across.
@#$%^&*$$. Humongous tire.
God was trying to tell us something. Rain is really coming - seek shelter.
Rain came. It was hell. Lotsa of chill wind further brought the temperature down. and finally..it rained hail stones! I swear I got hit by it on my way to brush my teeth!
I haven't mention much about the animals. This dude is one of them. He will make your balls shrink.
Talking bout wildlife. On my way there..through the cities and rural areas. I've seen herds of cows, goats, sheep, horses, donkeys and even ostriches! my gawd. A fun fact for you: you can actually distinguish cows just by looking at their noses!
King of the beasts! The LION! feeding on a giraffee! omg!
zebras running away!
spotted a hippo.
more on the other bank!
Giraffes from far.
End-of-frame dinner! er. I swear I didn't drink much. haha
Bye Lohathla. Last sunset.
me and hensley taking a last shot.
Trying to be ART-y farty. This was the morning that I left hotel for the airport.
Into the towns were all the ambassy were located. and of course I saw singapore's one!
Back to Johannesburg. I had had a good stay.
Final shot. An impending nine-hour journey back home.
Just a few pics to share! South africa was fun. and for wildlife-lovers like me, it's definitely worth the trip ;) gonna head to mauritius one day! weeeeee.
