Max (see his photo at a younger age from his blog) is from South Africa, check out his blog photos. Fascinating to see a country I will probably never experience first hand. Makes you feel more acquainted with this land just to visit his blog. Isn't the Internet fascinating that we can communicate with people all over the world. My son Brook will leave next week for India and says that he will send some photos and comments to share on my blog, so I'm looking forward to that.
