Near Port Elizabeth

We visited a "Cat sanctuary" on the R75 to the NW of Port Elizabeth.
Amongst other cats they had this very tame Cheetah.

Karoo Desert

Some typical vegetation.

Graf Reinet

Our pretty hotel room....
....and the sight greeting us after a supermarket shopping trip, during which a thunderstom occurred. So much for "desert conditions"!

In the foyer of the supermarket we came across the following advertisment.
We have never seen anything like it in a UK supermarket!

Passage of time

I took a photo of a typical 2013 road.
Pass the mouse ponter over it to see a typical 1960 road.
