    Naah looks like the Five Mile Drive between Bourton on the Hill and Broadway to me.

    A bit of a self-indulgent dig, this, but I've just returned from Antarctica and so have now ticked off my life goal of having visited all seven continents. I think I need a new goal, as I'm feeling rather directionless...

    Also, I don't know how many people saw this story:

    http://www.news.com.au/travel/story/...rom=public_rss

    But it happened while I was down there. The ship I was on was just 7 nautical miles away from this one when it ran aground, and so we were first on the scene as rescue patrol. We had to keep an all night vigil to make sure the situation didn't worsen until the Chilean navy came to take care of things. Got some cracking photos (of the stricken ship and Antarctica generally) that I'll post once I get them off my camera.

    Off to Cromwell for a day trip to the races in a week's time during my visit to Dunedin. Yeah, that's right - home of the giant plastic fruit.

    I used to live a 15 minute drive from the Giant Kiwifruit in Te Puke. That's my claim to fame in New Zealand.

    Would love to visit all seven continents but have a long way to go.

    Have thus far gone to: France, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Denmark, Malta, Greece, Morocco, Egypt, China, Mongolia, Australia.

    So still have to cover the Americas and Antarctica.
    However still feel I need to see so much more of the countries I have already visisted. Speny four months in Western Australia during the summer (my girlfriend is from Perth) but have seen nothing of the rest of the country and have been to Egypt without even seeing the Pyramids!

    I went to one of the most soul destroying cities the other day, which I actually quite enjoyed for it's depressingness.. Sasolburg is like a South African S****horpe, purpose built around an oil refinery, with a very middle class white area where nobody wants to speak English, and a sprawling township that absolutely sucks. Sasolburg is even named after the oil company, it has that much culture.. The various suburbs are about five kilometers apart, so you can't walk anywhere and there are freeways that seperate them.. It is in one of the flattest areas in the world, and around the city is just mile upon mile of corn fields.. No matter how far away from Sasolburg you are, there are no hills or trees, so you can still see the black smoke eminating from the refinery hundreds of kilometers away.. If you find yourself unlucky enough to be there, you will probably be the only road user who isn't driving an articulated truck.. It's hard to believe you are in the same country as Table Mountain when you go to Sasolburg.. That will teach me for trying to avoid a freeway toll booth

    I have just looked for photos of Sasolburg on Webshots, as it is a fairly large place, and the only photo I found was taken by me.

    Hmm...Sasol is paying for my studies, so I'll probably end up working there. I was supposed to work there in the 2008 December holidays, but ended up not going.

    At least I won't have a problem with those people, in fact I'll probably end up staying with them come December.

    Guess it isn't as bad as Welkom.. I know someone who works for Sasol but she does accounting so gets to live in Randburg, Afrikaans is my tweede taal, and I seem to have forgotten virtually all of it, which is fine when you live in Grahamstown.
