Delligsen, Germany -

Hello mum,

the postman rings and brought an envelope.

And it was fidgeting. Hm...... Günther meens: There could be something inside alive! So we decided to open the couvert carefully and quick. What could be in there? … :stare:

Hi Mommy!

Today we had a nice relaxing day at home. For lunch we made a 'braai' (bbq)

First I got to taste a South African beer and an alcoholic cooler

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/01c60dd3.jpg

We got everything ready. Katara made us some garlic buns and placed them in foil.

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/a4f62df7.jpg

Katara also bought some "Boerewors". It is very popular in South Africa, and no one makes a "braai" without some "Boerewors"

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/d6343355.jpg

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/613234d2.jpg

I helped braai the meat

Irene Dairy, Pretoria, South Africa - 9th April 2012

By: Katara

Hi Mommy,

I made a new friend! His name is "Bloomer" and he is a toy that wants to become a ToyVoyager.  :cyclops:

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/215ea399.jpg

Today we went to the Irene Dairy. The Irene Dairy Farm is a picturesque gem that nestles between the sprawling cities of Pretoria and Johannesburg. A visit to this old-style, storybook dairy farm is a must. Started in 1895, the Irene Farm has been run the whole time by the van der Byl family who are now on to five generations and has become an iconic landmark in the Gauteng countryside.

Hi Mommy and Alex!

Today we made some preparations for my birthday party.  ;) I'm so excited!!

In the evening Froggy and I helped Katara prepare dinner. We made a chickpea curry and ate it with a wrap. It was very tasty!

First we diced and fried the onions

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/6c1bc55e.jpg

Then we added some curry paste

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/c8995ceb.jpg

We chopped up a tomato and added it to the pan

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/e882896d.jpg

Next followed the chickpeas and a little coconut cream

Pretoria, South Africa - 21st April 2012

By: Katara

Hi Mommy and Alex  :cyclops:

I'm so excited!! I can't wait for my birthday party this afternoon!

We got everything ready in the morning - Froggy and Bloomer helped me. The time flew past and before I knew it, it was 14:00!

Froggy and Bloomer kick-started the party by wishing me "Happy Birthday" and handing me their gifts. As Froggy is a fellow German he wished me in German: "Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag!"

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/1a06d4db.jpg

Soon after the other guests arrived. I was happy to see that everyone whom I invited attended my Birthday Party. The more, the merrier!  :D

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/967a0741.jpg

They all wished me "n Gelukkige Verjaarsdag" and sang "Happy Birthday!" in Afrikaans.

This is the words to the song:
"Veels geluk liewe Phog 
omdat jy verjaar!
Mag die Here jou seen
en nog baie jare spaar!"


Then we played some games. First up was "Pin-the-clown-nose".
The guests started off by spinning me around until I was dizzy, and then I tried to pin the nose onto the clown.

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/22706a21.jpg

The guests laughed a lot!! I didn't even get the nose onto the clown's face. Tee hee!!

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/3738ed6c.jpg

Next we played "Twister". It was a lot of fun!!

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/3223887f.jpg

Then we were all feeling hungry, so I presented the 'snacks' and Birthday cake.

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/d6338750.jpg

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/d32b0a8e.jpg

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/ae724f7b.jpg

Afterwards we all played some 'Badmington';)

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/7568c4a3.jpg

Then it was time for opening presents  :cyclops:

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/cefc40f1.jpg

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/197c3385.jpg

I got a special coin and a teddy bear.

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/efb99f71.jpg

I also got a beautiful collar with a bell and a giraffe made of beads!

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/08655661.jpg

I truly had a wonderful Birthday!!!! :cyclops:

Hartbeespoort, South Africa - 28th April 2012

By: Katara

Hi Mommy and Alex  B)

PART ONE:

Today we took a drive to Hartbeespoort. "Hartbeespoort, informally also known as "Harties", is a small resort town in the North West Province of South Africa, situated on slopes of the Magaliesberg mountain and the banks of the Hartbeespoort Dam. The name of the town means "gateway of the hartbees" (a species of antelope) in Afrikaans. It was previously known as Schoemansville, named after General Hendrik Schoeman, a Boer General in the Anglo-Boer War, who owned the farm that the Hartbeespoort Dam was built on.[2]
The town consists mainly of holiday homes around the dam as it is popular with visitors from nearby Gauteng Province. It is home to the Om Die Dam (English:  Around the dam) ultra marathon of 50 km, which takes place annually in the first half of the year" (Information from wikipedia)

One the way to Hartbeespoort we drove past "The Fountain Circle" in Pretoria, which was decorated for the Fifa Soccer World Cup in 2010.

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk85/Katara007/phog/8c99ea2b.jpg

We stopped at the Welwitchia Country Market.
