Cradle of Humankind and Sun City Palace,Strekfontein

Hey my Friends,

Have You seen the Google Doodle yesterday? Well that marked the 41st Anniversary of Discovery of Lucy.  Well Lucy Believed to be first 3000 or so year old skeleton of a female which was somewhat like a chimpanzee but was bi footed or so the researchers believe and giving her name Lucy after the Beatles Song.

You might be guessing why I am discussing Lucy? I happened to be fortunate  to Travel to South Africa where I visited Cradle of Humankind in Strekfontein near Johanesburg. Certainly Lucy was not Found their, she was found in Ethopia. But Mrs Ples was found in the caves of Strekfontein and is believed to be around 2400 year.

Its a mesh of Limestone caves and so deep to be like going in 18 floor down the surface of Earth. There was a crystal clear water lake and magnificent Limestone structures emerging from the core of the earth.
