I do think those are the same chairs, but the coats of paint must be almost as thick as the wood by now! :P

Was there yesterday, just before World Cup kickoff!

(The Park was like a graveyard most of the day!)

Image

This elephant strolled around quite undisturbed by the tourists...who went pretty close! :shock:

Also a bit of soccer going on!

Image

(Look how empty the place is!)

And something bad: An overflowing drain...trickling into the river! :evil:

Thx for sharing our domestic problems with the world Richpins :)
Yes these things happen at Tshokwane as well. It was sorted out the next day.
Since it is deemed important I must state that is is grey kitchen water and that it did not run into any river.
Now if somebody could post a nice pic or two in place of those ugly ones I would appreciate it:)

OK David , how about this one :

And then an amusing incident some years ago , at the time when there was still a curio shop at Tshokwane .
A bus arrived , and tourists streamed all over the place .
After looking at the lapa , one elderly gentleman came rushing into the shop , and said to his lady companion : " Eva , Eva , come qvickly ! I vont you to see zis amazing erection ! "
My SO and I just collapsed with laughter :lol: :lol: :lol: And we still chuckle about every time we visit Tshokwane . :)

David's father starts the fire very early and as soon as the first guests arrive they can enjoy a perfect Boerie- or Kudu roll with Sheba. :lol:

Bennievis, a peaceful moment, sans people, I see; rare indeed.

MM, love the boerie roll ... notice you even took your spectacles off so as not to get them covered in sauce while eating. :lol:

Darn, I either stare at pictures of food or become embroiled in discussion of food on the forum every time I am starving. :roll: That boerie roll looks larger than life at the moment ... :whistle: :doh:
