after a lazy swim in the river.
Pieter, from Holland, is riding his bike from from Miami to San Fransico. What an inspiration!
We chatted in English, then a wonderful mixture of Afrikaans and on his part Dutch. He rode away with a smile, having heard something close to his home language while in a far and foreign land.
In the story, a boy runs away from home and survives in the wild Catskill mountains, he finds a hollow tree and turns it into his home. Read it!
Another historic town, near Canyon lake. A magical little town in the Texas Hill Country. Wimberley was designated one of America's "Ten Best Small Towns" by Travel Holiday Magazine.
The Texas Hill Country reminds us a lot of Mpumalanga, South Africa except the hills are only about 1000ft high. Mpumalanga being the tail end of the Drakensburg mountains, reaches 6000 ft in the Belfast & Dullstroom area's. Anyway, the mountains feel like home, and we loved it here.
