Vanity Plates...Dirty Greek style

It seems to be a blogging tradition especially amongst Ostendo and Aquila to feature Vanity plates from around South Africa. Well looking through my photos I came across this beauty which I snapped on the island of Rhodes in Greece. This is not technically a vanity plate but it makes for lots of hilarity for a group of South African tourists who happen to see it.

So here it is, the first international NONVANITY plate posting

"Jou ma se number plate boet"

Have a good one

Staying on the Carribean theme, another great island has got to be Aruba. Immortalised forever by the Beach boys in their song "Kokomo" everybody knows the first few lines of the lyrics...

"Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya..."

Aruba is only 32 km long so seeing it is simple, hire a scooter, find a few willing hangers on and set off for lunch somewhere.

Rock formations on the beach(Snorkelling is awesome)

Compared to the rest of the Carribean Aruba is quite sparsely vegetated and has more of desert like climate

The Shopping mall! We found a restaurant that uses Nandoes chilli sauce(Iguana Joes)

Local cars-A hoot

Aruba is part of the kingdom of the Netherlands but the Dutch influence is not really felt at all.

Hope you all have an awesome weekend.

If you looking for something different to do Sunday evening(22nd April) we are starting off the Winter Jazz sessions featuring Chilli and Lime. You can get all the details here or here. Just click on the relevant dates. Se ya there.

The Continental divide...

The Panama Canal has always fascinated me. We went through quite often and on one occasion I went on a tour with some guests and had a chance to snap some awesome pictures... Enjoy,

The ship must pass through 3 locks to get to the Pacific.

Entering into Gatun Lock

Waiting for the lock to fill up

and waiting...

Have a great week...
