I left Volksrust at about 14h30 and have just stopped in Carolina for a bite to eat and coffee. I should be home just after dark. Since adopting Mpumalanga as my home just over 2.5 years ago, I must say that I feel truly at home here. I've made a point of criss-crossing this province's highways and byways, in every season and weather condition imaginable. In return for the favour, it has stripped off it's layers for me one at a time, and has revealed it's hidden treasures. I consider myself honoured, and most fortunate.
