My mother-in-law came to visit for the first time a couple weeks ago, and we had a great time showing her Kruger Park and our daily life in Maputo. Unfortunately both Rico and I were quite busy that week, so Emilia really got a chance to know our flat and work routine as opposed to far-flung tourist hideouts, but it was still a great way to catch up and 'matar as saudades'.
Bonus points for a trip to Barberton en route to Johannesburg. Barberton is where my favorite novel, "The Power of One", is set. I felt like Peekay and Grandpa Chook might be around the next corner!
