One comment on “Barkly East”

Barkly East is in what one would deem to be the highlands of South Africa. It is a small town with no skyscrapers and ridiculously cold temperatures. It is one of the very few towns to have recorded a snowfall on every month although be it not in the same year. There’s beautiful flora and fauna in the area and a serene natural scene.
