Thanks Lionspoon. :thumbs_up:

I have spoken to Shi and she is probably going to be there.

I will be posting more

but

I live in a valley of mystery.
I sometimes think that this was the original garden of Eden.

The Cradle is known for the most exciting findings about our early heritage.

I am aslo close to Boer war history.

I am close to a confluence of 2 rivers that have carved breath taking images into rock.

I am close to the largest labyrinth in the southern hemisphere..

I suppose most of all, I am going to host someone who has added invaluable conrtibutions, fallen in love with our country, with Kruger. I would hope that that alone would attact folk.

Just a reminder that if anyone wishes to meet a very special person from Australia, there will be a possiblity on the day of the cricket at Skukuza.

My guests will be leaving after breakfast, so it will be rather a quick meet. After that anyone is welcome to stay on for birding, walking, talking and .. and.. and..

There will also be a bird show a few kilometres away. Bird lovers can watch a number of raptors and hear more about what is being done for endangered vultures. We would have to leave for this at 2:30, so I suggest a picnic lunch would be in order.

Soooo, Saturday is approaching fast. :whistle:

I really regret not being able to attend, still being on the wrong side of the planet. :( :( :(

Cant believe I only saw this post now. would have loved to meet up with some of the mites :slap:
Unfortunately I committed my self to take some visitors from the UK and Netherlands to Pilansberg for the day so I will surely do my part to show people from other countries what a beautiful place South Africa is .

Maybe a next time :gflower:

They didn't tell me the bridge would be under water :big_eyes:

We discovered that the mystery guest was in fact Melph68. (as if you hadn't already guessed!)

Mel, Shi, chirinda and MM in front.

Mouse was up at 4 slaving over a hot stove to prepare a delicious breakfast :D and it was such a pleasure to meet Mel and David. The time was short but we had lots to talk about. After packing the car, not forgetting the padkos, they left about 9.30 and the meet continued with more cups of coffee and conversation.

Nice chair, MM

Who Me??? Wasn't me!!!

Thank you, Mouse, for a very pleasant morning. Have a wonderful time, Mel and David, and safe travelling.

We had a very lovely and special meeting this morning.

Melph left at 9:30am. I loved her enthusiasm.

My electricity went off shorty afterwards. It did not matter. The company was 8)

Always a next time Ils. It would have been great to meet you as well.

I will own up to the fact that I did not keep the topic as updated as I would normaly. This is largely due to the unpredicability of my weather and also due to a nasty flu virus.
