    ... upon to deliver their expertise.

    The starting time came and went as an hour passed with still no sign of the band striking up. An hour and a half after the due starting time had come and gone and things were looking desperate when Nonhlanhla stepped up and took control of the crowd and got everyone up and singing. Soon the crowd were on their feet singing and clapping to some classic Zulu hymns and songs. Nonhlanhla is a sister in Christ who ...

After that we did a couple of minutes of ...

    A travel blog entry by kmorris25 on Nov 04, 2011

    After a very LONG flight that was two 8-hour legs, and then a 1 hour connection to get to our final destination, we finally got our land legs back again.

They quickly whisked us away to Shirley and Michael's home where we CRASHED after a cup of tea and Milo.

    Nothing too eventful on the flights. Debbie was impressed by the 50 ...
