Jammer vir die hijack ... as julle ouens ooit eendag wil, wat van 'n sterreaand by die taalmonument, Paarl?  (Okey, die winter is nie so "hot" idee nie)  Jy piekniek, kry 'n sterrepraaitjie en kan na die tyd bietjie deur teleskope loer ....

Go to Van Wyksdorp in the Little Karoo if you want to enjoy the stars and Milkyway. There is a nice camping area whwere you can lay on the grass and enjoy a evening full of stars.  :mwink:
