Where I am it's hot in summer but in winter some places get snow and the mountains get snow and when that blows across to us we freeze. This morning is one of those early winter mornings when a freeze breeze came up last night and now the cold is seeping through my clothes, as usual. It's the super dry air combined with high altitude.
South Africa isn't the typical African jungle or Savannah people think it is. It is a huge area with many different climates. Goes from desert to scrub to mountains, hills, grasslands, bush, tropics and Mediterranean and the coastlines are magnificent but also go from western desert to Mediterranean to cool temperate to tropical. Amazing place. Incredibly beautiful.
