Grahamstown, Eastern Cape

This is not the winter climate of my student days; instead of high winter rainfall figures and low temperatures, the days appear to be predominately hot and sunny now. And the Eastern Cape is hardly weathering its worst drought in 130 years, so much so that it has been declared a drought disaster area.
Nevertheless the 14th Highway Africa conference kicked off yesterday. The theme, thus far, seems to be a belated African backlash to China's takeover over of the continent. (Maybe it's too late...?)
This is Rhodes University's historical, famous Drostyd Arch.
