    ... a local that I was friends with on Facebook, Johann, and we went around the company gardens and Long Street for Lunch.

    We were discussing the use of Afrikaans and the meaning of Afrikaner identity in the modern world for someone born at the end of apartheid. What I was able to find out is that Afrikaans as a living language is essentially dead, at least in the city. He told me that people don't really live ...

    ... large neoclassical public buildings. We then continued walking back towards the Victoria and Albert Waterfront and visited some of the souvenir shops and then met the group for sunset drinks on the roof of a nearby luxury hotel. Sadly the day clouded over so no sunset but the views over the foreshore made it worthwhile. We then headed down to the waterfront for our last meal with the group who were leaving the tour ...

    By now you'd think getting up at 4 a.m. would be easy, but it's NOT!!! We have to catch a flight to Johannesburg/Joburg at 6:20 a.m. so we can pickup our vehicle and head off to Kruger National Park by 9 p.m.

    We arrived in Joburg around 8:20 a.m. and someone from KEA Campers came to pick us up. After a few errands at the airport we headed to the KEA office near the airport. Andre, one of the reps diligently went over the contract ...

    ... outside did nothing to dampen the footsteps of drunken people hanging around until 4am. Weirdly at 3am a girl came into the dorm and got into a bed then left again at 7am then at 5am a group of girls came in and out three times looking for spare beds to sleep in. We were a bit annoyed as they shouldn’t have had the code for our room and we got very little sleep. I won’t miss hostels one bit. We complained in the morning and the manager was very ...
