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.

He looks just like you, Charley!!! :)

Wait -- not sure if you've added yellow booties to go with your klompen....

Did you ask him if he would prefer Sam Adams or Guiness? Beer drinkers can be cranky.


What is the pink loaf on the plate? It looks Nether-licious.......


Ahh yes -- the pink item on the plate is a "gehaktbal met spek". A giganto meatball wrapped with bacon. The meat counter at the grocery store sells some pre-cooked items like this, and Charles decided to pick one up and try it out. Unfortunately, whatever seasoning they use to cook this stuff sends my stomach reeling. (Not sure if it's a holdover from the pregnancy or if it really just smells gross.) But anytime they're cooking at the grocery store, I have to avoid the meat counter. So I also avoided the gehaktbal he bought. Charles thought it was fine, though.


Judging from the first picture, I'm not sure he IS indeed Charles's son! Refusing beer?! Mama's Boy.
