Hey Africa!! I want to see your bikes!!

Just going through here and noticed that there's not a whole lot of activity here. Surely you must be riding bikes!! How about posting pictures of them here?

Here's a picture of my hardtail, A Kona Caldera.

Heh! Since nobody else is posting let me get cozy here. This is a new charango I bought me. Charangos are tuned just like a ukulele only while a ukulele is tuned to G-C-E-A, charangos are G-C-E-A-E. They have 5 pair of strings.

Still nobody here? That's good. I couldn't sleep so I thought I'd play my ukulele. Here is my new Lanikai Pineapple ukulele. An entry level instrument but has decent sound. This a song that just about every ukulele noob has to learn first. Plus, I do have an interest in Woody Guthrie. It was actually a protest song which still fits in our day and time. Don't mind my voice, I have a sore throat.

Neither is having tigers & lions as pets....but some rich people have them as pets. I guess if you get a puppy/cub and nurture it, it'll grow up thinking you're part of the pack.

Over by where I am (I grew up 2 blocks from the Marlboro Projects in Brooklyn), if you're a black gangbanger who lives in the projects.....and you happen to own a dog, 90% of the time it's a pitbull, the other 10% is a Rotti.

But the funny thing is that even though these guys are the toughest badasses around, their dogs are the biggest sweethearts. These thugs go everywhere with the dog. These dogs get to see everything - which means socialization 10+ hours a day, every single day. They become sweethearts.

I guess folks in Africa are a little more hardcore.

holy crap. . .
when I lived in South Africa I never heard of or saw that. One of my favourite stories was a tourist who decided to try to feed a hyena some biltong
from his car window in Kruger Natl. Hyena took the biltong and about 1/4 of the guys arm. . . stupid.

I wouldn't trust one of those as far as I could throw it.

I have a friend who owns a cabin in the kruger (sabi sands area) and he says that every morning this
one guy goes out on his bike and rides.
they call the rider "Meals on Wheels"

I miss Africa
