Had the pleasure to walk most of these tours with you … particularly intrigued by the “ Rusting Beira Lake Walk”. Love the title as so apt! It’s important to spot beauty in the detail – often hidden within plain sight around us. Love your whinging elaborations & observations. Keep them coming !!!! 🤩
