    I was just thinking we needed to start some sub-sahara Africa photo threads.
    Here's a few of mine from Botswana. It was at the very end of dry season (Fall 2008).

    I forgot one of my favorite ones:

    The World Cup stadium in Port Elizabeth, which was basically built on a brownfield (the lake in the picture was basically just a shallow swamp when I was there in late 2008):
