Simply Stunning images from Namibia - from Etosha all the way down to the Skeleton Coast. Come the apocalypse it is either going to be Namibia or the Transkei.

Auto-Awesome Photo Embed

Auto Awesome Photos

Trying to get my head around how you can use Google+ videos & photos on other websites.

We salute the effort shown to come out here and your love of catching the big one. Brydon & Russell looked like the emaciated Saffas that they are in comparison with these two […]
Karma Bunny

The Karma Bunny

Fear not, the morphine has now subsided and with a clear head and the promise of chocolate later, I finally get to pen my thoughts on the South African medical system and the Karma Bunny. The Karma Bunny is not mine - I simply write about him on behalf of my cousin, the youthful Michael […]
