Can you imagine leaving a place where two million people live in painfully undeveloped conditions and 15 minutes later you see this?
Welcome to Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. A truly beautiful place. South Africa is truly a place of contrasts. Beaches and mountains. Wealth and poverty.
If I was into trees and nature, I would have loved my Kirstenbosch experience more. Instead, I found this gorilla statue carved out of a tree to be the garden's most interesting feature.
To be fair, I was feeling sicker and sicker as the day went along. That cold I caught in Germany is taking advantage of the lack of rest and water. Time to drink as much water as I can find, I think.
