On Sunday after work I decided to go for a drive outside Kolwezi towards my house at the Golf.
Locals are quite camera shy, but after giving the kids some soft drinks they were happy to stand still for 5 seconds.
This is really a beautiful country, as soon as Blitz is ready I will take a drive up here on my next rotation.

LOL! My huis is op die Golf perseel, ek speel nie golf nie.
Hier is 'n meer so 30km van my af, die boot staan by my shop, ek moet nou parte koop as ek uit gaan om die ding weer reg te kry.
Daarna sal julle baaaaaie visvang fotos sien!

Die fotos is geneem net buite Kolwezi in die DRC.

Jy moet laat weet! Sodra ek terug is 7 Junie sal die boot reg wees.
Dan is dit sulke tyd!
