Jan 10 - On our way

So, now we are on our way…. The flight went well but it was tough on our legs. We have rented a car through Avis, an Opel will take us through the country.

We stayed in Jo’burg for one night but I think that we managed to see a lot anyway. The day we arrived we managed to find a guy that took us around the city in his taxi. We drove around for approx 2h and managed to see the “highlights” of Jo’burg. I do not know if the infamous police station were people disappeared from during the apardheid regim is a “highlight” but anyway…

The day after we went on a Soweto tour where we saw people living in tin houses in one part of the township and in the other part in luxury villas with nice gardens. Compulsory stops were at the houses of Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu and Winnie Mandela. Only Nelson Mandela isn’t living in Soweto any more.

We left Johannesburg yesterday afternoon for Lydenburg where we managed to find a really nice farm guesthouse to spend the night at. Unfortunatelly we woke up this morning with cloudy weather…

Right now we are in Sabie where we have to have a cup of coffe and tea. Eli can hardly stay awake in the car and we also need to decide if or when we are going to Blyde River Canyon since we can not see anything due to the clouds hanging down. The guide book says that it is supposed to be nice viewes around here so I guess that we have to believe it since we can not tell ourselves…
