So little to look forward to this time of year and so very many crappy things to deal with, so here’s another postcard of the Could Not Have Said It Better sort.
It’s of the Valley of Desolation, in South Africa – but I think they got the location wrong. It’s right here! No doubt, you probably have one near you too, at times anyway.
The postcard doesn’t do it justice – poor photograph that it may be, it is still just too damn cheery for its name.
Here’s the back side with a description; apparently Desolation is “beautiful”:
“I’m doing this out of order… This is the landscape around Graaf Reinet – very beautful but was 4 nights ago. Now we’re in a beautiful, serence guesthouse ina placed called Wilderness that isn’t near as wildernessy as [unknown] but it’s still beautiful, as is everywhere along here. Lots of enormous lagoons, I’ve never seen so many (if any) lagoons in my life.”
