My Photo

South Africa - November 2011

  • Pilanesberg landscape
    In November 2011 we traveled to South Africa and brought Charles's parents along for the ride. We spent a week in and around Cape Town, a few days near Hartbeespoort and the Cradle of Humankind, a couple days at Pilanesberg National Park, and two days with my friend Stephanie and her family in Pretoria. It was a FANTASTIC trip! There are (currently) 78 photos in this album and don't include some of the great places we visited or people we saw. I may add more as we finish weeding through the approximately FOUR THOUSAND photos we took. Seriously. It was a great trip.

It's the same deal in Belgium, but at least they have this sliding divider thing at the end of the checkout station, so all your groceries go on one side of the divider, and when the checker is done with your stuff, he/she slides over the divider and moves on to the next person's stuff, which gets flung next to yours in its own compartment so you can keep bagging your stuff while the next person's stuff gets scanned. Of course, this means that the person who was in line in front of you was frantically bagging his/her stuff while yours was getting scanned, too. Not exactly pleasant, but at least you have time to bag your stuff. But if the person behind you in line only has one or two things and you've got a whole cartload, then you're in trouble as the stuff belonging to the person two-people-back in line behind you starts raining down on top of yours!
