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.

cultural note: i grew up in a household where university songs were assumed. my parents had them for their korean schools; i had one for undergrad; and "The Victors," of course. in explaining the repeated singing to our dutch friends, they looked at me in what i thought was sympathy... it turns out it was a look of complete disbelief. apparently they do not have school songs here. weird.

How would the Dutch respond to the Tom and Carol singing of "Ay Ziggy Zoomba" from BGSU? Maybe they might understand "Forward Falcons" better?


I suppose they would take it just about as well as a quick, rousing rendition of "Io Triumphe!".
