Well, that's no joke! The people that have followed her blog will know that on the 30th of september the big day is here, after 2 years of sending in forms she's finally allowed into The Netherlands, and we're going to be a real couple! (The definition of a LAT relation needs a rewrite!)

Do you for any reason want to see her before she flies? Or worse, see me?
We'll be in <little smiley looking around for mods> Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden on sunday, the 20th of september.
For those that don't know us:

The Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden is an outstanding birding locality close to the urban centre of Johannesburg. The relatively small area, virtually surrounded by urban development, is managed by the National Botanical Institute (NBI) and includes a diverse array of habitat types which ranges from steep cliffs surrounding a magnificent waterfall to open scrubland and riverine woodland. Several short walks run through the garden and the surrounding natural areas. The JCI Geological Trail has recently been developed and gives visitors the opportunity to not only walk along the Roodekrans Ridge and in the Nature Reserve portion of the garden, but also to learn something about the fascinating geology of the area. Guided tours can be arranged for groups. Information brochures, a map and a bird list are available at the gate or NBI office. A morning's birding in the garden during summer can easily produce a list of 70 species. A total of 230 species have been recorded in the garden.

So you may have a reason to visit anyways! :lol:

@DQ, I think you have made a mistake with the meeting place. I have checked the map of Lower Sabie & cant find the park. Is it next to sunset dam :roll: :roll:
