  2. "Strawberries, strawberries - here be strawberries. 20,- for a k - 30,- for 2."

    Cool perspective.

  4. Hi Marianne!! Great to see you back and posting!! Love all your shots, so different form the European and American scenes that most others have posted. The ones of Bulawayo show a distinctly more austere atmosphere to the ones taken in SA.

  5. Great to see you Marianne. Hope you have recovered from your illness and not overdoing anything.

    Your photos are very instructive in that they show a true part Of Africa. I do like the bottom one showing that beautiful Jacarander tree.

    I wish they had spell check here. LOL

  6. Hope you are now completely recovered.

    I must say the streets of South Africa are certainly different from the streets of Switzerland and other Euopean countries. Love the photos, something really completely different.

  7. Very different street scenes from all other posts.
    I like the last photo the best, I think it expresses all four of them in just one shot.

    1. Thank you, Marcel, it is so difficult to choose, I wanted to really show you the real Africa.

  8. I love them all, Marianne, and I'm so glad you were feeling well enough to post. As others have said, very different from those that have posted before, but a really good view of life in South Africa, which I'm sure all appreciate. (Hugs to you, my friend)
