4/8/2006 South Africa

      I just spent March 20th-29th In South Africa with Emily and her friend Lara. It was my first time on the African Continent, so I was too busy asking questions to take too many pictures, but I got enough to prove I was there, and I had a great time in the process. As you will see, the place can be stunningly beautiful, but it can also be depressingly impoverished. Unfortunately I was only able to capture the lighter half, which does not do justice to the character of the place. I also failed to capture much of the wildlife, notably SpringBok (like deer) and Cape Penguins, the latter of which had absolutely no fear of humans to the point where you could literally walk up to within a foot of them. Next time I'll be sure to get a shot or two... See The Photos.
