We returned to the hotel for afternoon classes.
For dinner we returned to TsiTsi, again enjoying meat platters ( though I am getting a little sick of meat and want some seafood!)
Also we had fantastic desserts of chocolate cake and honey coconut cake. I walked back early to the hotel to get a full nights’ sleep. Tomorrow we have a long hike to the ...
