“Faith in a Zulu Township”

Our Saturday didn’t start as planned. I arrived at Barry & Wendith’s home at 9.30am in readiness for our trip to Inanda and Effingham, where we had three groups of Zulu people to catch up with during the course of the day. But my greeting with Barry was a bit distant which was caused by his agitation of a problem that had come up that he was trying to deal with. Barry is an ...

Pete Kennedy is kindly sorting some stickers and a new map for the side of the car as his business does this type of printing.

We checked back into Happy Hippo as we didn't like Tekweni, they only had an En-suite room available but it was still cheaper also. We went to the Moses Mabhida football stadium which was built for the world cup staged here in 2010. We did the guided tour, we took a cable car to the top of the arch which has viewing point so we could see all of Durban and Phil did the stadium swing, which is the highest swing in the world. You basically jump from one side of the stadium and ...
