Golden Scene

A roadside scene of the countryside on the day I left South Africa

For more scenes around the world, click here.


  1. Beautiful composed photo of a summery scene. Considering our current weather, the sight of golden summer is most welcome.

  2. Thanks Janie. I look longlingly at this and other photos of home - all I have around me here in the city is concrete and dust! I hope you are wrapped up warmly. (((Hugs))) Jo

  3. SA's golden scenes will wait for you - know you'll look hard and find the beauty of Khartoum. New profile pic!! Is the draping very warm to wear? Verlang na jou, vriendin...

  4. Ha Ida! Ek het gedink of jy of Lynda van Tanzanie sal die nuwe profiel foto eerste raaksien... Although the material is of a woven type, being draped is not at all warm. Most of the ladies here still have a bun, chignon or ponytail under theirs. You know me: shortly shorn! So I feel cool. I bought this particular one here in Khartoum last year. I have other BEAUTIFUL ones given me by my dear friend, Fazila (Pick & Win, Marquard) and she and her daughter taught me how to drape them. Ek sal 'n pos hieroor moet doen. My email is nog nie mooi aan die gang nie dus is ek SO bly om jou hier te sien - ek verlang so baie en wil graag jou fotos van die rit sien. Hoop jy be-oog om 'n foto-blog te begin... Ek sal jou grootste "fan" wees. Liefjou. Jo xxx
