About a month ago I had a vegan meal at Amuse Café in Linden. They have a vegan evening once a week. I hadn’t yet put up the blog that I wrote about that meal because I was wanting to go back and take some more pictures. I took pictures on the night but by […]

It was found in the Malapa Cave at the Cradle of Humankind by […]
