Almost Orange, almost unreal!

There are a number of places where one can find a bit of solitude away from the hustle and bustle of the city.  Living in Gauteng it takes a little bit of effort to discover little havens and places to hide away from the noise to breathe, unwind and relax.  Almost Orange is one of...
