Bush Tucker!

October 9th, we were planning the last part of our South African journey, the safari at Pilanesberg National Park. Before we started we needed to do some grocery shopping. We went to shop our bush tucker at Pick'n Pay at the Kilarney shopping mall in Riviera and here you see the content of our shopping trolley.

Bush tucker means what ever you would find to keep you alive in the bush. We did not have to think of such things. The supermarket in Johannesburg was so different from the one we had visited in Estcourt, on our way to the Drakensberg mountains. Well stocked, and with a selection of goods that would rival any supermarket in Europe.

We had fallen in love with our boereworse, ye Boer sausage during our stay in the Drakensberg Mountains. We intended to substitute it to bacon for breakfast. Bread, sweet chili sauce, a large lemon, and spinach - a favourite after so many meals during our trip. I particularly loved our wine - a chardonnay from Thandi, a producer under the fair-trade label.

And after our visit we left for the bush - to behold the wonders of Africa!!
