November 27 Photo of the Day: South Africa

February 3, 2012 – As I mentioned in an earlier post, Hluhluwe-Imfolozi is the oldest game park in Africa and the only one in KwaZulu Natal with Africa's Big 5 (lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, rhinoceros and leopard).

According to Wikipedia, the African Buffalo, or Cape buffalo, is "highly dangerous to humans" because of its "unpredictable nature". (Apparently birds don't have the same concerns.)

However, Ernest Hemingway apparently figured quite correctly that carrying and using a honking hunting rifle more than evens the playing field. Way to go Ernie!

September 25, 2012 – Exactly two years and two months ago, the view of Toronto harbour from Sugar Beach was decidedly more appealing than it was yesterday with 100 km/hour winds.
