August 2013 (Haenertsburg and vacation)

AUGUST 2013 *Complicated   Month: I returned to Haenertsburg. Bobbi stayed in   Hermanus and met her friend (Keith) in Cape Town and toured Cape Town for 3   days. Bobbi and Keith then flew from Cape Town to J-burg, then onto   Zambia.  I picked them up at the   airport in J-burg. We then toured Kruger and Swaziland. After dropping Keith   @ J-burg airport, Bobbi and I met friends in Sun City for weekend.
