Thank you, Africa


We've just returned from a fabulous, amazing two weeks in South Africa. We spent about 10 days out in the African bush - and it wasn't nearly enough.

More stories to come... but in the meantime, our deepest thanks to:
  • Kathy, for inspiring us to go
  • My parents, for raising me with a spirit of adventure and a friendly familiarity with elephants
  • Mathew for being a fantastic host and introducing our taste buds to South Africa
  • Tita Birgitta and Tito Carl for graciously welcoming us into their home, and for patiently staying up to hear our excited stories about Kruger
  • James, Corlia, Philemon and Johannes for an unforgettable introduction to Kruger's Wolhuter Wilderness Trail
  • Our very good-humoured trail companions - it was a pleasure evading rhinos with you
  • Wayne and Connie at Elephant Plains for finding us 4 of the Big Five on our first game drive
  • All the staff of the Kruger National Park

And most of all, to the two hippos of Gardenia Hide... for making Africa personal, and memorable.

Whether your posts are an account of your daily life, or an expression of your thoughts, the SMP hopes to find a home for your memories so that it can help build towards an understanding of Singapore. You will also receive a badge that you can display on your blog in recognition of your contributions.
