My Ten Favorite Pics from South Africa

These are my ten favorite pics with me! Don't worry, it's my one big pic entry. I'll mostly be posting a few more individual pics as I write up the associated stories.

Winelands Winelands

We made a trip up to the winelands region near Cape Town and had some really bad wine at a few places. Most of the winery places just opened up a few years ago, and this was some of their first batches, which also had
been beset with problems with a bad grape year due to some misc. problems drought/grape plague. It was very pretty, but I didn't buy any wine.
