There and back again...

It has been one and two weeks respectively since Carina and I returned from our trip to South Africa. We left on the 19th of February from a snow covered Sweden and arrived the next day in sunny South-Africa. The change in temperature was a bit more than 30°C from a chilling -10° to a warm +23°. Thinking that the heat was going to be a shock we were prepared for it (and it was not so bad after all). We were, however, completely unprepared for the visual shock we experienced (see the following photos, no color adjustment were made).

More color commonly found in South-Africa

The best part were of course the time we spent with our families.

Celebrating the arrival of the small one in green,

and trying to convert some of them to Swedes.

But we are very glad to be back and are looking forward to more real seasons with noticeable changes. Currently the temperature is +4°C and all the snow is slowly melting. This means that the landscape is still mostly white dotted with increasing patches of brown and green and puddles of slush puppy water everywhere.
