Union Buildings, Farmer's Market and Botanical Gardens

Some more pics from South Africa. :)

Union Buildings

This is the Capitol in Pretoria where the famous Nelson Mandela statue stands. 

Farmer's Market

On Saturdays in Pretoria, they hold a giant farmer's market, full of produce, Afrikaans music and treats, coffee and crafts. It reminded me a lot of the Portland market, but with less tye-dye. 

Botanical Gardens

The National Botanical Gardens in Pretoria was one of those gems that the locals know about but the tourists seldom find. It was gorgeous and peaceful, and we had a lovely hike there, along with a lunch at the cafe.
