Richtersveld, South Africa: This is one of the hottest places I have been. But the plants are very interesting and you have the Orange River to cool off. Watch the monkey's because they are watching you!
Zoar (‘refuge’, ‘haven’) village and mission station 21km E of Ladismith, Western Cape. Founded by South African Missionary Society on Elandsfontein farm (1817), named after Zoar by the Red Sea. Very old photo taken with very old camera. Please excuse bad quality.
