That night JD cooked up a storm and after dinner we decided that it being our last night we'd have to sleep under the stars. Despite having put our tents up earlier, we pulled out our mattresses and sleeping bags and all slept around the camp fire
The next day was the last long drive to Joburg where there would be no more dirt and dust, concrete and shops every two minutes... it was so strange! As we drove into the city I was quite impressed, I didn't think it looked that scary. Hale has big houses with big walls around them too, perhaps without the razorwire on top yes but still, it looked clean and safe. That was until I saw either a domestic or a mugging in the middle of a busy street in broad daylight. Some guy just walloped this girl and knocked her out cold as we drove past. Noone stopped to help and my heart was suddenly in my mouth. I decided I wasn't leaving the hostel for the next five days.
We got to the hostel, which had double electric gates at the front and I was actually quite impressed. It's a beautiful big building with spacious grounds and a little rabbit warren type thing going on underneath - loads of little rooms off down corridors - ones a games room, another a bar and a swimming pool out the back. I booked myself in for the next five nights.
