Remember South Africa 2010 (no 6 Mokopane – Potgietersrus)

As I said in RSA no5 I am not going to say anything about Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe and Botswana are two countries bordering South  Africa.

I had the opportunity to be again living for nearly 2 weeks with my best friend who owns a guest house in Mokopane.

I thoroughly enjoyed the time with her. She took me on some outings with her.

Here we are visiting a farm just outside Potgietersrus.

We also did some scrap booking at another friends place.

An accident happened.My friend wasted her drink all over her pages

One should not eat or drink while scrap booking.

We also had a scrap book session at the guest house to say good bye.

Having a tea break!

My friend surrounded by scrap book goodies.

And there is the drink again! This time nothing happened.

A frontier town that’s still looking for its destiny – Mokopane (previously Potgietersrus) was established by the Voortrekkers in 1852 as Vredenburg. Its early history is one of conflict. This was followed by happier times as a thriving agricultural centre when it became known as the “garden town of the north.” Today it’s primarily a mining town that’s yet to grasp the potential of tourism, notwithstanding a World Heritage Site 10km outside the town and the Waterberg Biosphere on its doorstep.
