Stylin in Amsterdam...what classy travelers wear these days...who owns these slippers??
Who is this guy...and where did he get that hat?!?!
Penguins!!! Here they come!!
Then we realized there were about 1,000 of them running around!?;))
That has gotta itch!
Molting is tough work!!
Ya are talking about Baboons...with a whale logo!?
Students of the art...
The penguins are amazing to see in the wild, but when I saw the nesting and courting Commorants I got weak in the knees...
Can never have enough nesting materials...
The courtship process is amazing...
Roadside Rainbow...African style...
Crazy antique store, bar, restaurant & hotel along the road between Cape Town and the interior where we went for the Meerkats, caves and Ostritch
I think their Route 62 is the equivilant our our old Route 66...
"Your throat can tell"...I bet it can!?
Upcoming movie "Detour" spent a couple days filming here! To be out in 2016??
Not enough roofing materials??...no worries...just use an old Studebaker hood...duh?!
Arrival at De Zeekow Ostrich Farm
First one up!!
The sun warms their bellies...starting the hyper active digestive system...they stand, looking for predators and warming their bellies up to temp, then they are gone foraging for the day...
Kids will be kids!
Kids didn't stand around much...wrestling gets them all warmed up!
Dave was working hard out there!
These fantastic structures grow at the rate of 4-5mm/100 years...do the math on that one!!
This huge cavern, one of 6 various caverns we got into. The floor of the first and biggest cavern was filled with clay to smooth it out a century ago...they held plays and concerts in the space!! Our guide sang an aria from the Phantom of the opera...it was fantastic!!
see the folks in the lower left corner...gives a sense of scale to the 4-5mm/100 years!!!!!
This is awesome!!...take a look!
This blur shows how lush the countryside was in this area...
except for the dried up mud puddles...
This was our van while tripping around Cape Town and SW South Africa...nice ride!
