English summer

I haven't had much to say about SA recently - partly because I haven't been out of Joburg, or indeed anywhere much except at home and in the office - and in the UK for two weeks, my first visit since I got here. In England I was struck again by the luxury of being able to walk just anywhere - in Norfolk I took a walk on my own across the fields for a couple of hours (impossible or at least very unadvisable in SA) - and didn't see anyone except a lone woman walking her dog - and the dog was very small, not a mastiff serving as bodyguard. We should appreciate the freedoms we're able to take for granted, where we can.
