I don’t know a whole heckuva lot about South Africa. But I have some awesome blog-friends from there. I truly enjoy their posts and hobbies and photography. I’m learning.
So, this is what I know firsthand…
My Mom has traveled there for her job. She brought back some squash seeds, and put me to work growing South African squash in Iowa.
And wowsers, are they better than plain old American yellow squash! Smaller, but oh-so-much better tasting!
I also know that they have many more exotic animals than we could ever hope to see here.
She said the zebras were rather snobbish, as they wouldn’t pose for her and would only show her their rear-ends. 🙂
But I suppose my anxiety would be much worse if I were to step out on my deck at sunset to hear the snort of a wild boar, or see a herd of water buffalo grazing in my back yard. The cats would most likely need to be medicated as well! They are a tad high strung over the neighbor’s fenced-in horses already…
And finally, I know that they have beautiful sea shores.
Maybe someday I shall know more of South Africa, but this is what I can share for now.
Thanks for stopping by!
