Seems that a good volunteer can produce better maps than the commercial providers. Take a look at Boggomsbaai, the holiday town I was in last weekend:

The trip, in general

I am really enjoying being back here in SA (last time I was here was 1994) and seeing all the relatives again. The weather has been a real mixed bag, some rain, some sun.

Tomorrow Brian, my father and I are headed to Addo Elephant Park for a few days, then we back here and then off to another holiday town called Vermaaklikheid.
