Four days relaxing in Plettenberg was delightful but now it’s time to move northward. We began by driving 127 miles to Port Elizabeth Airport, turned in one car, then flew 565 miles to Durban and picked up another car.

It has now been almost a week since I moved into my homestay. At first, I didn't feel incredibly comfortable.
