      Day 6 St Lucia to Drakensberg

      Monday 8 September we departed 7.30am and headed towards the Drakensberg Mountains via the East Coast, travelling through Durban, the second largest city in South Africa with three million people.

David went on the all day tour to the Amphitheatre which involved a 2 hour drive to ...

Back on the truck our ...

      ... 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 ...
