The Letter "A" -- Weekend Roundup and Reflections

The Letter "A" -- Weekend Roundup and Reflections
The twenty-seventh issue of Weekend Roundup for this year, 2020...
- the Letter "A" Prompts are:
(A) Contains the Letter "A";
(B) "Architecture";
(C) A Favorite; and
(D) Reflections
_ _ _ _

(A) Contains the Letter "A":  "All" contains and starts with the Letter "A".   It is one of the shorter "A" words and I was surprised to see it on the company name sign along the highway southeast of Cape Town, South AfricaAfrica also starts with "A".  [Note:  these pictures were taken through out closed bus windows.]

(B) "Architecture":   More scenes as we road out of Cape Town.   Cape Town is a booming place, very modern. 

(C) A Favorite:   After Apartheid, two more "A" Words.   This really is not a favorite that I like (Oxymoron??) but a familiar scene over all of South Africa that I want to remember.  Most every town has a community of folk, no longer discriminated against by law, but still super very disadvantaged economically. 

The homes are built out of what can be arranged to get, often scrape lumber.  Many have no electricity or running water.  Also not a planned community with an organized street plan or home placement.  

(D) Reflections:  This another look at a part of where we walk.  Second picture is a slightly cropped display for closer large size view (click on picture, click on THAT picture if you have a "+" as your cursor or other visual means, or just try it).

The primary reason for all the green areas is for flood control.  We had a few inches of rain the day before I took these photos.
