Day 14 of 21 and we went rural !

15 Oct

and boy wsa it colourful and hot and fun ! we went to a place called Tugela Ferry where the people simply are real rural and still do all things traditional. I loved it !

just in case you thought I wasn’t really there this is the proof I have for now. …….. wait some more evidence to come. ( maybe not today though)

Just before we left on our journey it was very miserable here in Umhlanga (wish I could hear you all trying to say THAT word) 🙂 anyway it is a beach town in Natal on the East coast of South Africa.

I love lighthouses but don’t have access to too many in my home town of Johannesburg (a long way from the sea)

Have a look at these girls walk to school. The road goes right down into the valley and then they have to walk all the way back up. You can see the school building at the top.

So it’s HOME tomorrow for a couple of days and then off to Eastern Cape for the 2nd to last haul !
