I returned this last Monday from a week visiting Matt in South Africa, spending most of our time in Cape Town with a day or so in the Pretoria area. The trip was amazing from my vantage point (you'll have to ask Matt how much longer he could have put up with me, but given my peculiarities I suspect not much). The country is lovely but with deep troubles. Both the land and the people are beautiful and welcoming, and I saw so much that I plan to do a number of posts highlighting particular experiences.
I do appreciate being back though!
