Our job takes us on some interesting roads:
Below is a pic of a place where the animals have been licking the rock, probably for millennia…Its quite a nice view from here (looking north)This pic was taken an hour or so earlier – slightly to the right of the view above.That minibus is nearly MIA in that pothole, and I cant remember what it looked like when it got to this one – bottom left! I think there were three people on top of that minibus! Most often in this area, everyone drives in the ditch!
The roads in these two pics below are what we commonly drive on! I’m always wary of Mopane veld – a burnt Mopane stick slips through a tyre very easily – something to do with both the carbon and the hardness of the Mopane heartwood.
