... I also needed to forget saying Siyabonga (thank you) and learn the Xhosa thank you that is "enkosi". Thankfully Tracey knows quite a lot of Xhosa and was able to teach me on the go. The children absorbed our lesson (or should I say Yvette's lesson which she teaches our brain gym grade 1 class) as we taught them signs to go with the English words "look" "in" "here" which we repeated over and over before learning to write it in shaving cream on coloured paper and ...

... from joberg a few years before. The setting was great, in a farm house, and we were the only guests that night, eating by candlelight.

I was reminded of hikes as a scout with that feeling when the legs take over and ...

... and I thought my time is probably up. Jon crazily started to paddle toward them, and shouted that they were dolphins. I was sceptical at first, but soon saw that he was right. So we cruised on the swell a bit with about 15 dolphins within touching distance (I still didn't touch them in case they were sharks in disguise). I then mentally compared that to sitting in a traffic jam listening to Grimmy on radio one, and thought this life isn't too bad. In ...
