De Wildt Cheetah Centre

After being collected by our hosts and taken for Breakfast to a Botanical gardens, this included a nice stroll around to see waterfalls, eagles, weaver bird nests. Very nice way to start a Sunday morning indeed.

Following this we collected some provisions for the afternoon, and drove to De Wildt Cheetah Centre. I am a little tired this evening and find it hard to express the experience today so the photos can do the talking today, will consider an update sometime depending on the schedule.

Hello from Johannesburg

Well, I am kind of surprised that I have not made a post since Jan 1! little blogging absence that I am sure has resulted it the hordes of people watching to believe that I had fallen off the face of the earth.

I am here on a business trip to train and ensure that a product release is ready for a go live in the coming weeks. So far the trip has been busy to say the least - I am sure that you okes don't want to know much about that. Here are the few happy snaps that I have been able to take.

I left Melbourne late on a Tuesday and spent 17 hrs overnight transiting in Perth for a very comfortable flight on an SAA plane (with 2 seats - thank you very much) got some sleep and arrived at 4.30 am on Wednesday morning. Talk about a red-eye flight.

I promise that the pictures and story for tomorrow will be more interesting.

Pick and Pay - amazing shop looks like a photo shoot..

On a wall for the short stroll to the office...

Friday afternoon at the office...
