Never again

Visiting Auswitch was one of the most difficult and sobering experiences I have ever had. I could literally feel the weight of history and the events that happened there just on 70 years ago.

It is a place for thinking and reflection, and somewhere that all world leaders (especially ours) should visit to get an understanding of what suffering really is, and to see where their ideologies and actions can lead.

It is not the sort of place you can visit to enjoy the visit, but it is somewhere you visit to remember our history and to maybe, just maybe learn from it.

Moonrise

One of the side-effects of the ongoing loadshedding in Cape Town is beauthful skies at night. On this evening my suburb was in total darkness, but you can clearly see that the next-door neighbourhood had light. So I managed to shoot this wonderful shot of the moonrise with a few start in the background.

I think that is Orion’s Belt on the top right.

Old Cart

I saw this wonderfu old cart on our recent travels to Krakow, Poland. It was just outside the hotel, but I love the old-world feel to it. I very much doubt that is has moved in years and it is unlikely to move again. But it looks lovely.

Penguins

You can’t visit Cape Town without a visit to the Penguins in Simon’s Town. The tourists live them, but I also has a friend whose house is in the beach and they regularily have penguins vising their house and nesting in their lounge!
They are really cute, but they stink as well!
