Now the young men thought it might be a good idea for me to lead the way having heard my mantra that "old age and treachery will always overcome youth and enthusiasm" and besides if I fell off they could come along and pick me up, or so their story goes. So heading out the gate we immediately discovered that the yellow clay like road surface soaked by a night of rain had all the consistency of a good axel grease.

He handles the road like a pro and the drive is awesome, even 'suicide bend' and 'haemorrhoid hill' can't stop us! It takes about an hour to drive up and across the boarder into Lesotho.
