Instead of another rant about posting about looong forgotten events, I'll just refer you to the origin of the name of this blog. Done.
Let's go back to the Langkloof in March, okay? Okay.
Some Langkloof animals, but since the internet is already full of cats...
Here are some dogs and a lizard, too
Finally, the next time you're roaring down this Route 62, stop in at Kannabos Cacti and Succulents for the most beautiful collection of plants ever.

Since I'm totally behind on picture posting I'll just do something else as an aside...
Not only has every step of the administrative process of applying to the University of Tartu been super effortless and everyone really friendly, I've also just discovered that I apparently get a tutor. The Estonian music video below is courtesy of his introductory email. Naturally the concept immediately reminded me of Die Vraagstuk by Die Heuwels Fantasties featuring Jack Parow. Two tiny languages at opposite ends of the earth, doing their thing in comparable ways. Do you know other videos that use this concept?

I'm almost done with a bit of DIY for our balcony. That is to say, I've done the essential parts but the balcony itself sleeps in disorder tonight.
While a greener balcony will be nice, it will never resemble Babylonstoren's garden. We dropped by there in March on a day out that started at the Afrikaanse Taalmonument. Speaking of the latter, apparently it's an interesting place to do wedding pictures or pseudo-futuristic fashion shoots. Who knew?
Anyway, I recommend a visit to Babylonstoren for a bit of gardening paradise and the best iced tea in the universe. That's about all for now.
