    ... of course!! We had our much loved picnic lunch at Howick Falls and arrived at the Drakensberg Gardens Hotel around 4pm. It was a long day in the bus so five of us walked for an hour up the mountain beside the Hotel and watched the sun set behind a truly spectacular set of weirdly shaped mountains. We were supposed to be following a "blue" trail, but didn't find any blue markers for about half an hour and what they said ...

    ... rain never let up so we opted not to take a tour and instead went to an ATM to get some Rands, South African currency, and then to a close by mall where we bought toothpaste, wine and some nuts. At the check out line the cashier said that the nuts were too expensive and she took them out and wouldn’t let us buy them. Could you imagine that ever happening in the states? This mall was very modern with all of the big ...
