      Today we're off on our tour of the Spieonkop battlefields. So after breakfast, local battlefield expert, Ron, outlined the background to the Boers (meaning farmers, in Afrikaans) and the English imperialism. "England is a nation of shop-keepers". The Boer/English wars were a litany of blunders and unnecessary slaughter. There was Paul Kruger from Transvaal and his counterpart in Orange Free State, and under various commands, the British, influenced ...

      ... The dolphins were beautiful though with the main chap having been their since 1972 and so was a grandfather and everything...cutie! They performed all sorts of tricks with hoops and basketballs, clapping and dancing! It was amusing how greedy they were with the fish wanting to be fed and rewarded a few after each trick, fatties :p! Truly beautiful creatures though and well worth a stop bye! We then ventured on to see some penguin and a few seals but unfortunately had to rush a ...

      ... a few villages that seemed to carry on for a vast distance into the hills around Durban, with roads to more or less all the houses which was quite surprising. We past a lot of kids along the way, very few of whom waved. I think in my head I was expecting here to be a lot like India and China; with the locals fascinated by us and waving at us and talking to us at any opportunity. This now seems so naive now knowing the history, and that whites (tourists or not) ...

      ... Spent some time in Usharka Marine World and in particular Sea World. Also tried to get to Umhalanga Rocks only to be thwarted by one a huge tree that had fallen across the road and two my sat nav that continued to want me to go this route and at one point tried to get me to reach another road 50 yards way - only problem was that there was a garden between the two roads! The World Cup ...

      ... journey back wasn't as good as the one on the way- possibly as it was preceded by a night in a comfy hostel rather than a claustrophobic coach. But it was still good to get back to Bulawayo.

      Before I came, many people expressed surprise and concern when I said that I was travelling through Zimbabwe. This was definitely how I felt as I approached our first day there- not least as we were the only tourists around, but our rucksacks topped it ...
