From Pete. Get out and buy shares in BP quickly. Their sales will ...

Our next stop was at the Kimberly Mine ...

... country to the Garden Route along the coast. Dusty and dirty, all the buildings seemed to be falling apart. Found a hotel (no hostels here) in the centre - fraying carpets, holes in the sheets, but at least it was clean.
