Travel theme: Bountiful

We saw much in abundance during our travels in Lesotho and South Africa, but nothing stood out quite like oranges — big, heavy bags of oranges frequently stacked one on top of the other in roadside stands and vendor stalls.  Enjoyed by young and old, this bountiful fruit was both plentiful and affordable, offering much-needed nutrients and just the right amount of sweet, juicy pleasure! (Tennessee may be the only Big Orange Country!)
