So, I am back. Happy, and smiling. What a great adventure, what great people and what natural and human beauty - all crammed into an intense week in the Tankwa Karoo. The sights and sounds will stay with me for a very long time - be it doef-doef music, a girl's sparkling laugh, the whistle of my kettle boiling or Noa's Israeli accent. And because I am terribly impatient, here are the first few (of many - be warned) pictures, with very minimal editing. ‪#‎afrikaburn‬‪#‎tankwakaroo‬ ‪#‎beauty‬


My Campsite - between #dissipate and "just stand there and watch me burn"





Stepping Out



Unicorns Abound



Still Standing - Subterrafuge






Almost all pictures are just after sunrise, or just before sunset. A golden, magical light shines on the barren Karoo at those times, turning the "ordinary" (which it is not) into the extraordinary.









Once a Landy lover, always a Landy lover...


LOVE is in the air...
