    ... got a speeding ticket for doing 65km in a 60km limit.Rather sneakily the speed trap was set up just after one of the many Foot and Mouth obligatory stops but on this occasion there was no one there so he didn't slow down enough.However,it was a quick crossing over the Limpopo river into South Africa and as we crossed the whole bus sang Happy Birthday to Sebastian.

    We left Liindbergh Lodge just as the wildebeest were departing from the waterhole early on Wednesday morning (18th). With our host Doolie at the wheel, we had plenty of time in hand to drive the 45km into Wolmaransstad.

    ... Apparently the patient thought he was late for our flight and therefore he ran all the way from immigration. I can tell you that is a good 1 kilometre in that airport. He made the flight but gave himself a heart attack in the process. They carried him off the flight and amazingly we are now required to have a complete crew change over including pilot. Because we haven't burned enough fuel we did an 'overweight landing'. This means the aircraft must receive an ...

    ... stood up to them in a bloody uprising and finally gained their freedom from their oppressors. We next visited the Nelson Mandela Museum - so very interesting and also very moving. We completed our tour of Soweto (population of 3 million), a city that was started primarily for the labourers in the mines and is now a sprawling combination of lovely houses, tin shacks and dilapidated old dwellings. (Once again - thank ...
