Buddas and Tin Cups

The Joburg Photowalkers set out to cross the Boerewors Curtain today and visit the strange lands therein. First stop was Irene to meet other photowalkers who joined us from the east. With the cars carefully packed with photowalkers we headed for the buddhist temple of Nan Hua at Bronkhorstspruit. We spent quite some time here as there was lots to see and photograph. But soon lunch was calling so we headed out to Cullian, a small dorpie where the largest diamond was found in 1905. Well it was the largest until another diamond was also found here in 1985 which was 15 carats bigger. After lunch we walked among the quint shops and found an assortment of rusty tin cups and plates in one of the shops. We had fun exploring the shops one by one. Later just before sunset we rushed of to Sammy Marks Museum, an old colonial mansion in the area for more photographs. With sore feet, I am looking forward hitting the sack.
