Но тогда это Африка, где оба слона и буйвола можно найти и где ни жить в клетке. И темные и одинаково опасны! ;-)

Take a look at my photo of the grave. It contains more landscape, that could be why yours has not been accepted for Google Maps or Google Earth. My other close up photos of the grave have been turned down too.

Great! :-) Incidentally, for anyone wanting to go to the Wikipedia page, the link page has underscores between the words "Ankerlig", "Power" and "Station".

Answered my own question. I have now posted a picture of the Bumi Hills Safari Park lodge as seen from the lake!

Hi zhsv

Thanks for your kind comments. Thalia Game Reserve has a range of quite extreme topography from an elevated and craggy wooded escarpment (in the picture), grassy plains and deep vegetated valleys running down to the Phongola River. Have a great Christmas in Belarus. I guess you are now into heavy snow or expecting it shortly, while we move towards a hot summer in South Africa. Best wishes John

It's sad that this shop Susan Hughes is no longer there

We did an event in Fourways this weekend and drove past this impressive "house" on our way to our accommodation. We were so intrigued and determined to find our who lives there, but not even the guard at our lodge knew. When I looked into the matter, I also read on the Mail and Guardian website that Sisa Ngebulana owns a R55-million house in Chartwell, which boasts a nine-hole golf course... So wondering now, is it a home or a hotel...
