Random pictures from this week . We finished another puzzle this week. The hard part – or at least the part we did last – was the wolf. Lots of different shades and they designed the cuts so that two pieces next to each other did not look like they could possibly go together. But that is what makes doing puzzles both frustrating and yet fun.
Load Shedding is the term they use here for rolling blackouts due to a shortage of electricity. It seems to be a big problem this year due to both demand and lack of capacity. The sign below is from Woolworths which although in a mall that sometimes goes dark has it’s own generator. The elders like to eat at a Chinese place near our flat that cooks with gas instead of electricity so they can provide hot food even when the lights go out.
I continue to drop in at the Tembe webcam at least once a day. Usually I get rewarded with elephants and lots of antelope. Â I like the bookend pair of elephants without any books. I was also happy to see a couple of waterbuck that do not show up very often. The lower right picture was from this morning and it has elephants, impalas and even two waterbuck. Now where are the lions and giraffes? Well as the game drive guides always say – you never know what you are going to see in a game reserve.
