Our daughters and their families returned safely to the U.S. over the weekend, after a very successful holiday in South Africa. I’ve attached a few photos to give you an idea. Two are at Gold Reef City: the kids were impressed to learn that in South Africa, Santa is Black; the other is after a trip down to the gold mines. There are three from Kariega: our full family taking a break after a game drive on the Veldt; the boys in the pool at The Homestead; and one from the braai — at the end of the table are Travis (our dedicated game ranger) and Sara (our cook and housekeeper) — they are a couple, and were terrific. Finally there is a shot from one of the tidal pools at Salt Rock. We also visited the Zulu Cultural Center on the road to Pietermaritzburg and had several other adventures. Right now, Chris and I are in JNB with Chris’ close friend from childhood, where we are just relaxing, including visits to the Apartheid Museum and the Cradle of Humankind.
Our trip could not have gone so smoothly nor been as wonderful without your skilled hand guiding and directing us and making all of our arrangements. Thanks again for all of your help.
With best wishes,
Dan and Chris, January 2015, United States
