Why I choose to live in Africa.
« on: June 27, 2013, 07:54:45 pm »
Thought I would start a thread for members to show their unique Africa photographs. Anything goes, but it must be Africa.

Here is a start.........only in Africa!

I do have a choice, but I love Africa, born and raised here and no particular desire to leave.

Because, I can, at almost the drop of a hat do and live this....


I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

Beautiful photo of the giraffes, and the bottom photo of the 2 donkeys. ;)

Yes, Africa rates highly when it comes to riding your bike. I also choose to live here, for as long as we are being allowed at least. :xxbah:

From the mountains to the sea...









...the fact that it is old and broken in places is the reason I have such a passion for the place! A week touring in a first world country leaves me bored...there's no challenge at all  ;)
I have traveled to and across many continents on this earth, but never felt as at home than here   :biggrin:
