While the African drum was beating passionately so was that of the burglars breaking into our house on Friday night! Reality check! Say no more....

Having a bit of a moment! We are in Nelspruit for a wedding this weekend and Luke and I decided to steal a romantic getaway (aka dirty weekend)in the Kruger National Park. Not a good idea when you are in the throws of emigration. We have spent the evening having sundowners (probably one too many!)overlooking the river watching the hippos, crocs and elephants wading through the water, listening to the cry of the fish eagle and so aware of the 'African drum' that beats so passionately within us! A bit dramatic, I know, but wondered what the feeling was of others that have left their homelands and emigrated to Australia. Do you ever get over the yearning? I so wish that with this beautiful country came security, opportunity and the life-style that we experience in moments like these. In reality.... these are stolen moments!

Boo hoo hoo, sob sob, sniff sniff....

OK, I'm over it now.... moving on! Glad I got that off my chest! Any nature reserves in the Outback?
