Some menus ... some ideas...

Every evening/night I done a fire, except at Nossob, (the second stay) the braai was not in order to do :rtm:

more often in the evening :whistle: I don't like the night... and more if I'm alone... so generally all was ready before the night :lol:

beef/porc kebab + tomatoes
Chicken breast - fried potato (tinfoil)
Lamb chops - green beans
Sausages (ebenwoers) - potato salad
Beef - Eggplant
Tomatoes + eggplant (ratatouille)
Pork chop tomatoes on the grill
Beef Rib - beetroot salad
Steak in the pan (the braai was... :twisted: )
Marinated beef fillet - potatoes
Chicken - gratinated potatoes

:dance: :dance: :dance: the chance you have... to have braai :D

Image

Image :hmz: with my Swiss knife... no knife cut enough in the kitchens :?

à suivre...

Vultures

At Cubitje Quap I also found a lot of Vultures… and 3 or 4 Secretaries Birds and it was not easy to share with the Gnus. Always impressive to see these big scavengers :wink:

Image

Here some White-backed Vulture/Vautour africain

Image

Most of them are nesting, near Urikaruus, almost all the trees are occupied

Image

And on the dune plus a lot in a close tree :hmz:
