Not too bad for a last day in "Map" (as will say NetEk) :D


I'm trying to start a new "lingo" we have KTP and KNP so Map will just fit in. Maybe it should be MNHSATP No that won't work (for those that don't know the full name Mapunghubwe National Hertitage Site And Transfrontier Park)

(and I'm lazy to type the whole name out and keep getting the spelling wrong) :tongue:

Thanks for your nice words barryels (welcome back home), umtali1, Trrp-trrrrrrrr, hilda (welcome back), MM, isinkwe, gatita, Pumbaa :D :D

We took a nice coffee at the restaurant terrace

Image

amazed by the architecture of this building.We read some articles on this project before we left France but we would never imagine this level of technicity and perfect integration of the interpretation centre in the landscape.

The restaurant has a second floor with a nice view on the building and on the surroundings

More posts of the museum to come
