I had a wonderful break in Johannesburg - reconnecting with old friends, celebrating my nephew's wedding, seeing some great places and just enjoying being there with my family. Until 15 years ago, this was my home turf, so it is always good to go back for a visit! We stayed in a cute B&B called La Bastide near Hartebeesport Dam, It was just brimming with style and creative ideas!
The seating in the lounge was cleverly done and the piece-de-resistance was this quirky lamp made from scrap metal! If I could have put it in my suitcase I would have! These interesting light patterns through this small glass window in our room... were created by this old post box door mounted on the other side of the wall! A successful combination of the ruggedness of Africa with large doses of European finesse!
