A Familiar Rural Scene in Africa, for the WPC ‘Yellow’

Seen on the road home from ‘The Palace of the Lost City’ resort, to our then home in Johannesburg. The dry, yellow grass, was still waiting for the summer rainfall, to turn the countryside green once more.


(Limpopo is one of South Africa’s rural provinces, where the use of donkey carts remains a means of transportation and income for villagers. Both goods and people, including schoolchildren, are carried on these carts.)

  1. When we were younger, my brother and I used to call donkey carts 2×2’s because there were two donkeys and two wheels on the cart. Every now and again we’d come across a 2×4 (two donkeys and four wheels). We found this highly entertaining πŸ™‚

  2. We will be quite near here soon, “the great grey, green limpoco river all set about with fever trees….” Love the pic, my challenge will be finding wifi or internet in kruger so i can squeeze out some posts. i hear lower sabie and berg en dal have some….
