    ... it was the smaller male on top of the larger female, so I got that one wrong! I found another couple of examples of these multi-coloured grasshoppers in mating pose, so must have been the season.

    The blister beetle, large and black and pretty handsome, is pretty nasty when it flies at you during lunch on the verandah, and you want to avoid its sting. Also saw a decent sized brown millipede.

    Lunch very couth, flying blister beetles ...

    ... the Professionals might have a different effect than watching 10 year olds. Bryces team won 79-76. After the Cricket match, we headed back to Umbloti. It was now 4:30, and with a combination of rush hour, and road construction, we couldn't take the highway. It was not moving, all four lanes jammed. So...they improvised.

This second bus was the people movers bus, one of 3 lines that takes you all around the city, sort of for tourists but the locals use it to. All plain and simple, and all for less than 1!

    We were heading to Victoria market for 2 reasons; 1) to obviously shop, 2)to find an Indian restaurant to try the ...

    ... tour with Kent and Mark. We drove around the city, to a high point to get a great overlook, then to the Botanical Gardens which were very peaceful, but not as spectacular as the Botanical Gardens in Singapore. They did, however, have a 5 Senses Garden which was very cool and made me think of my AWE friends. There was a small orchid house and a few animals which ended up being the only animals I'll see in Africa! ...

    ... life that they have there. The Dolphin show showcased eight dolphins and was done in a similar style to Seaworld in Orlando but on a lower budget. It was amazing to see four of the huge bottle-nosed dolphins jumping in unison to the music and doing their tricks. They are amazingly intelligent and really beautiful animals, and these ones were way bigger than the ones we swam with in New Zealand.

    From Durban we then spent ...
