Our World-There’s no place like home

No heal tapping with scarlet slippers could have transported me fast enough from South Africa to Yarnell, Arizona.  Instead the journey included 27 hours of flight each way.

Much more fun was all the amazing discoveries found along at least 2,500 kilometers (1550 miles) of driving around South Africa starting in Johannesburg and winding slowly to Cape Town.

Travel expands my mind, and then I have to stop awhile to process.  For me, that means coming home wherever that may be.

Stuff to be unpacked

Being gone for 46 nights made me truly appreciate my own bed’s comfort.  The unpacking may take a while.
