    ... dramatic landscapes. I would agree with all of the above, except popular, we hardly saw a sole much to Jackie's consternation. If she can't see another white face, not counting albinos, she thinks we are going to get mugged. Particularly when we drive through villages with kids all walking along the side of the road, waving! With the drizzle and cloud and stunning scenery, it felt like we were in the Scottish Highlands. After paying our 30 rand entrance fee, the gate ...

    ... as I looked around at what we had achieved in a few hours, what the willing spirit and hard work of those around us, by coming together, united with the same goal, just exactly what we could achieve. It was simple. It was this, this playground, this upgrade, something seemingly so simple for us and yet means so much for someone else, my only wish now is that I would see the looks on the crèche kids faces when they arrive back after school holidays. Now that would be a moment to ...

    Leopard time!

    This morning Jandre was in Ladysmith doing the shop with Jon and Angela while they returned their rental car. This meant that once again we were with Vukami and without a car. Today was much hotter, as was yesterday and it meant that travelling around the reserve by foot was really hard work!

    ... a treat we went out for dinner in Colenso, at the Colenso club. Its a working white-man's club. A lot of interesting characters there... and by interesting I mean pervy, and by characters I mean middle aged plus men, farmers as well. They really hadn't learnt to keep their hands to themselves, but they were so drunk it wasn't hard to shake them off haha.

    Interesting evening overall...

    ... a hill/mountain, over rocks, through acacias, buffalo thorn, prickly pear and aloe vera to name a few, so ended up covered in scratches. Also most rocks were not stable, and i managed to push one in to the poor girl's leg behind me with considerable force. but we ended up going over the top, with minimal injuries. The walk down was also challenging, as we were faced with long grass (initially a relief) with loose rocks under almost ...
