The year of the horse

Happy New Year, everybody! This year is the year of the horse, according to Chinese astrology, which gives me a good excuse to share a cute African horse with you.

    1. A horsey year should be a good year for a runner, no? Time to get zebra-striped running shoes! :p

    1. Gelukkige Nuwe Jaar! That's "happy New Year" in Afrikaans. :)

      PS: I actually had a Freshness Burger for lunch, but I didn't eat the bun. My gluten-free eating pattern continues. Fortunately I could have lots of gluten-free mochi for New Year! ^^

  8. I am both a pedant and ignorant, so this is my big chance to say that I thought a zebra wasn't a type of horse.No doubt wrong but at least it's given me the chance to be pedantic! :) Have a happy New Year and I look forward to more of your posts in 2014

    1. That's just me acting silly! Horses and zebras can interbreed, but they're different species. Though ... this is Africa ... anything's possible ... ^^

  12. Hi Rurousha. Like you I'm an expat living in Tokyo, blogging about travels in the are.

    Just wanted to say, I've found your posts a real inspiration and taken several day-trip ideas from them - you're really a wonderful writer and photographer. If you ever want some company on one of those day trips, they sound like a real blast.

    1. Hallo, Guardian Enzo! What a great way to start a new year: with such a nice comment from a fellow blogger! Thank you! :)

      I've just popped over to your blog, and uh-oh, I do believe I've bumped into another shrine&shitamachi lover! I'm always ready for another hunt, especially once it gets a bit warmer. My southern blood will probably defrost towards late March. So many mountains to climb, so many trails to follow! :)

  13. Happy New Year Ru! Wishing you a year of happy walkpeditions, felicitous discoveries, and beautiful photographs... and plenty of umeshu! ;)

      Oh, and umeshu?

  14. Best for the new year! Don't forget about all the other horses that we have, tall ones, lazy ones, horse bees... Looking forward to more of your interesting reports - enjoying them very much!
