We've scheduled our trip to Cape Town beginning Wednesday, so don't expect any posts for a couple of weeks. To get you through, I'm publishing pictures of Mabuda Farm--site of my training trails, and a recent hike with Mo. I trust you will find them unusual because it is an oasis, or even an apparition, in this area of poverty in the mid-veld. The house is over 100 years old, from the Colonial period, now owned by a white physician who employs many Swazis for operation of the largest dairy farm in the kingdom. It appears to be something from an Agatha Christie novel.
These pictures were taken from the cow trails when we hiked a week ago. Views into the valley...then Mo takes a break from birding, then points to over the ridge where we live.
I expect these pictures to surprise you, but note that they are not typical of any other place we've seen in the kingdom.

Back in two weeks.
