Oh South Africa, How Do I Love Thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
Of your oceans, coastlines, and mountains,
Filled with new friends and endless beauty.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most active need, with sun and wind, flora and fauna.
I love thee freely, as a traveler strives for adventure.
I love thee purely, as they turn from the mundane.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my best-lived days, and with my childhood’s dreams.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my hard times in Eastern Africa. I love with the breath,
Smiles, laughter, of all my life; and, if immigration permits,
I shall but love thee better after a road trip in Namibia.

Yes, thanks to EBB, sonnet 43. 🙂
Another 6 weeks for me to go in this SA I fell in love with. You were around to see the anguish of the decision time to stay on for another 3 months. Great decision and I will be back. Enjoy Namibia and send yr itenerary etc as it is also on my to do list. Glad to have been a small part of yr journey in SA and Swaziland.
Glad to have your company for part of my journey here, as well. Enjoy the remainder of your time in the Rainbow Nation!
