B is tagged

For Frizztext challenges I am going to combine the A with the B or rather the B with the A

 

For me it is Back home in South Africa

These are just some loose opinions that came to my mind

 After living for more than a year in Europe, I have mixed feelings about been home again.

I live in a beautiful sun filled country where I can take my dogs (who followed me like my shadow the first few days) for walks at a nearby dam.  I missed it and they must have missed it as well.

 We were a British Colony and then we had an European orientated government .  Yes I know the previous regime had its shortcomings  –  I do not want to make this a political post.  All I can say is: Now we live in an African ruled country and that is vastly removed from what we were used to. In some regions the racial conflict is also still perceptible. 

We expect visitors from Germany in a view weeks. The one couple visited South Africa about 4 years ago and fell in love with the beauty it offers.  The other couples were very hesitant but after meeting us, decided to come to South Africa as well.  I just hope and pray they would not fall victim to our country’s crime.

South African country side

When asking me which country I prefer, my answer  is:  If there were a place with the best of both, I would choose that.

 

Ps: unfortunately, I do not have so much free time a more, so my blogging will be a bit erratic

    Ai, die liewe Suid Afrika! Ek mis SA baie maar tog is hier in NZ ook weer baie dinge wat gemaklik voel. Was laas in 2010 in SA en dit voel soos n leeftyd! Geniet maar dit wat nog geniet kan word.

      Dis baie moeilik om te vergelyk, maar my Europese bloed loop nog dik – al is my voorsate al van die 1700’s af hier

        Stem saam, ek is in Holland gebore en het 55 jaar in Suid Afrika gebly – eintlik maar n leeftyd. Dit maak my hart so seer om te sien en te voel dat so baie historiese dinge net vernietig word. Ek was altyd n stoere Voortrekker en getrou aan die SA kodes. Nou is dit heel anders.

        Ek moet erken as ek in julle situasie was, het ek my bes probeer om Nederlandse burgerskap te kry. Ek sal baie maklik daar kan aanpas

        My oudste suster het Hollandse paspoort gekry en haar kinders en kleinkinders ook. Dis egter n heel ander storie met myne toe ek dit wou doen. Om te kan skoolhou moes jy eers burger word voordat jy werk kan kry. Sy was nog nie 21 toe sy dit gekry het dus was sy gevorseer deur ouers en regering om dit te doen. In my geval was ek 21 toe ek genaturaliseer is dus het ek self glo die keuse gemaak en is dit my verantwoordelikheid gewees en is nie gedwing om dit te doen nie.Wys jou ook maar hoe sekere dinge gedoen word sonder dat mens besef wat die uitslag later kan wees.

    Trying to figure out exactly where is this dam – on the other side of the big road?

    As I said this is dark Africa in many ways but we do have the sun.

    I have come to realise that the best is to enjoy the country you are in at the moment. Each has its pros and cons and each can be enjoyed for its beauty and lifestyle.

      Thx Ad, I love these doggies. Unfortunately we had to put the small black one to sleep just a few days after I took these pictures.
