karoooooo (awoooooo)*

* to the tune of les savy fav, what would wolves do

my favourite thing about the karoo isn’t the wide open spaces or the lack of people or the lamb or the way it feels in winter (though all those are unimaginably good) – but the buildings. oh, those little houses.

when it rains so much in the cape (as it is right now), i always want to go somewhere cold + dry, like the karoo in winter.  karoo in summer? no thanks.

karoo-shops

these are great because the karoo always makes me think of long hot drives & stopping at a kafee for an ice cold COKE. i hope these general stores don’t disappear forever. via john kramer
