... up early and after breakfast, loaded up the car and resumed the trip north. After a discussion we decided to break our journey at Kimberley, the old mining town as Dad was interested to see the Big Hole.

Might go to Kafue in Zambia or might just see how long it takes before I am asked to leave. Fortunately I have aother uncle 45min away with another couch & TV.
