    Join the club. As an ex-Namibian I lived for most of my life in southern Africa. It's hard to leave Africa. I like your artwork. Good job.

    Thanks for the welcome guys, no matter what I do that smell of a hot African rain storm just stays with me, here it is too cold to even smell at the moment LOL

    I was constantly engraving African wildlife for the 19 years of my business in Zimbabwe, including many trophy pictures. here in Suffolk I very rarely get that sort of commission, (now it is mainly bird shooting) so when I do I really "go to town" and when I have time I engrave some for my own satisfaction and sell them on eBay, usually to USA.

    Lesley,

    Wow I love the Impala and Caracal engravings.

    I know how you feel.

    I worked for almost 2 years in Dubai.

    Could not wait to get back to South Africa permanently.

    Once you have smelled the African Bush after a Thunderstorm. See the sun sets...

    You will always come back....
