    ... afternoon, we were served a very elegant dinner on time. We all felt special as the staff, dressed in Tux's served us another wonderful meal of soup, followed by enormous cape rock lobsters, another wonderful cheese course and dessert, of course all accompanied by wines. We ended the evening in the observation car chatting with our fellow travellers. A party atmosphere was building as the drinks flowed ...

    Today is a travel day and an afternoon of rest. Our flight left Kimberly at 8:25am. We haven't flown a turboprop in a number of years. The ride to Johannasburg was smooth and uneventful. If/when we visit Kimberly again, we will look into taking the train from/to Johannsburg. From O R Tambo airport, we took the relatively new "Gautrain" to ...

We took over 200 pictures and spent almost an hour walking thru ...

    Today started with Elsa bringing us a tray with fresh coffee, juice and biscuits -- in bed. No one has ever done this for either of us before so, it was a REAL treat. At 10am, Elsa drove us to visit The Big Hole. This is a very historic place in Kimberly as it is the first diamond mine and the town was established as a result. The open pit showed in the picture was dug by hand. Over time, as technology developed, they dug vertical shafts eventually down to 3200 meters ...

    ... off watching a
    film about the mine and town and then went to see the hole itself.
    The viewing platform had a roughly 20ft square hole cut in the centre
    which was the size of 1 claim. Initially miners could only hold a
    maximum of 3 claims, until Cecil Rhodes got the rules changed. From
    here we went to the original head shaft for the mine, this has been
    slightly adapted and we enter a new ...
