One of the guards at the entrance to Prague Castle. This is very much their version of the beef-eaters at the Tower of London.


In South Africa, we have an informal network of car guards that watch our cars while we are out and about. Often you are intimidated into paying a tip for the service, whether you want it or now, and the level of service is often questionable.

Today I had a refreshing experience. This guard promised me that my car will be”same make, same colour and same wheels” when I got back. And when I got back he assured that my car was still “same make, same colour and same wheels”  as when I left it. Yes, he did live up to his word.

I love living in South Africa.

ps: no I have not downgraded my bakki (pick up) for a Tazz.
