NY Eve 2011

Off to the Mcgregors New Years Eve traditional Olie Bolin.

Happy New Year!
  (excuse the watermarks…trialling new software before I purchase!)
This may well be the first New Year we have spent in Mcgregor – this evening we headed up the street for the annual ‘Olie Bolin’ which is a tradition in this part of the world. One of the locals prepares something similar to little donut/vetkoek balls sprinkled with castor sugar aswell as little glasses of homemade ginger beer.

All the local villagers congregate, indulge in the fare, make a donation to a local charity and wish one another – so different and so cool!

We then came home and drinks with some mates of my folks and spent the rest of the evening chilling out – we were all well asleep before midnight!
