      ... been nice to have some guys to talk to but 9 german young adults and 1 british guy for dinner was.. Interesting.. Yesterday me and my new friend Chris went sandboarding which is basically snow boarding but on a sand dune on the beach so it is warmer (but still hurts just as much went you attempt a 180 spin over a jump and end up eating 3 tonnes of sand). I will hopefully get some picturesbof ...

      ... were decked with wetsuits, life vest, harness, 'nappy' and helmet to abseil over a rock ledge which had no tubes at the bottom of it....a very rude awakening of what was ahead of us and their hangovers. Suddenly we were abseiling down a 19m rock, jumping into a dark cold waterfall pool and swimming down in between canyons with our leaders Teebz, Puna and Shef. Teebz the tour captain was a natural teacher and leader who was very patient and kind to us all ...

Yet here, people with next ...

      Erik is sitting beside me speaking to a gruff-looking, but gentle-spirited, German man with a cigarette (Ingmar). He and his partner (Katarina) helped us located our tent spot when we arrived.

I suspect some major health problem settled upon them and they’re trying to ...

      ... Another glorious day. We went on a Township visit today, very
      interesting, but very humbling when you see how the Coloureds (as they
      are called here) live. But there seems to be a lot of hope and things
      seem to be slowly improving. We went to a nursery - could have stayed
      there all day - the kids were great and all wanted to be picked up and
      played with. An incredibly moving but interesting few hours. After we
      went to ...
