South Africa

(Click to Enlarge. Sorry for the blur.)

I was really excited and surprised to receive this from my roomate when she left me for a semester abroad. :)
South African Fun Facts:
Table Mountain alone has over 1,500 species of plants, more than the entire United Kingdom.

South Africa is the second largest exporter of fruit in the world.
South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique are tearing down fences between the countries' game parks to create a 13,500 square mile game park, which will become the largest conservation area in the world. It will be bigger than Switzerland, Belgium or Taiwan.

South Africa has a penguin colony, which thrives thanks to the cold Antarctic currents on the west coast near the Cape.


  1. If you actually make this stew, can you please let me know. I would like to see where you cook it :)

  2. I love postcards. That is something that I collect too. I have them from all over the world and the United States. Whenever family or friends take a vacation I have them send me one!
