Yes, I am home after the most fantastic three week vacation in South Africa.  Travelled thousands of miles, by air, boat, jeep, helicopter, bus, and on foot with a great group of people.  Seeing and experiencing so many things, the people of S. Africa, especially the children, animals, oh! the animals, birds, and a python.  The most incredible scenery, dry desert areas, which have yet to received the Spring rains, the mighty Victoria Falls, the rocky mountains, trees and shrubs in full leaf where some rain has already fallen, fertile valleys in the wine growing area and some of the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen.   I have eaten some of the most unusual food and visited the S. African wineries, and drank their wines.  There are over 1600 photo's in my camera, no don't worry, I will not be posting all of them here.

Today, I am taking things easy, getting over the jet lag after flying  to Toronto via, Cape Town, Johannesburg and  London UK all one after the other, with lay over times in each airport, it was a long 36 hours.  The unpacking of my suitcase is also on the agenda.

For those quilters that read my blog, yes I did purchase fabric.

Bye for now,

I'm really happy that your trip went well - isn't Africa an amazing continent? All you did sounds so familiar.......aren't we lucky to have experienced such beauty and wonder. I'm lifting a glass of Amarula to you....let's hope we can return again some day.

I returned from Istanbul yesterday through Toronto also, and like you, am unpacking etc.

Take care and get some rest.
Hugs, Mary
