Just 4 mths to my next and third trip to heaven, amazed it took me so long to discover paradise. I was initially surprised how many fellow Brits logged on here but my first trip expelled any doubts.

I d'ont normally go in for bum shots but here goes.

Hi Everyone,
I have what I thought was a great bum photo so I included it in my November 2008 Trip Report. Needless to say it was ignored. Not one comment. I guess I was setting my sights too high. :wink: Then I stumbled upon this thread and after seeing some of your photos, I'm positive I'm setting my sights too low--but I'll add it anyway. :P

It was taken on a loop road in the Shingwedzi area April, 2007.
