Photographer's Note

Dear Trekkers
this is one of the many beautiful vineyards in the small town of Franshoek in the cape region of South Africa.
Franshoek, meaning the French corner, was initially settled by French Hugenots fleeing religion persecution in Europe. They brought with them there knowledge of winemaking and started the now important wine industry in South Africa. The buildings are in typical cape dutch architecture usually with thached roofs. Franshoek today is the foodies capital of South Africa with an abudance of Michelin star restaurants and countless vineyards to sample the local produce.
