Napier Patatfees (sweet potato festival) today

Enjoying the finishing bikers and (half) marathon runners plus the festivities around it this morning. It was busy! Cape Town must have been empty today ( 😀 😀 😀 ). Around 40 pictures to bring you in the mood for next year.

His Grandfather used the ride the bike …

Now it’s in use as decoration at the entrance of a restaurant in Napier, Overberg region, South Africa where the cat is the boss and the proprietors are just there to pay the loans…. 🙂


Out of South Africa 8: Amsterdam bikes and other bits

Last year we went on a 4-week journey to Europe and Canada. It was for the first time since more than 11 years that we had a holiday ‘out of (South) Africa. We mainly visited family and friends but in between we took time to travel around a bit. With my Sony Cybershot 7.2 I shot a few thousand low resolution pictures (average 100 kB each) so don’t expect much high quality. For this serie of 10 I selected about 30 pics.

Today’s pictures were made in Amsterdam, a true cosmopolitan city we dearly love. It’s a bikers paradise but there is also more such as the butterfly greenhouse of the ‘Tropen Instituut’, the famous Artis Zoo with a ‘welcoming’ dinosaur and as usual we leave the known tourist attractions for others to photograph…
