A small step, but at least progress

Yes, after just short of 4 months we have a P.O. Box for us and our future business.

Getting the actual  P.O. Box was not so bad, took just an hour (including queueing).
The challenge was getting the prerequisite paper work, e.g. proof of residence. And then we had to overcome the strike.

Now it is just until Monday, when we can pick up the keys.

The most recent horse in our stables

definitely not the youngest.
Well, I am not sure whether this paraphrasing of a Germain saying translates in English – maybe it is GEnglish.  😉

I am speaking about our workhorse in pyjamas, a 1958 Series 2A Land Rover with a zebra pattern paint.

Fire beaters are necessary, but not enough considering our tented lodge in the making.

So we will buy a veld fire fighting unit, and during the winter months she will carry this. For the rest of the year she’ll be a multi-purpose work horse.

To acclimatise her to the the new environment, we take her on a sun downer tour around the farm.


Obviously relaxed and happy dogs

And if Mungane feels it is too close, he emigrates to the kiddie’s shell.
Obviously he is not claustrophobic.

Zipho always has a mean to get left alone.
