Day 2 in Africa

Day 2 on our trip and we have only managed to get to mokapani (this town looks like Potgietersrus to me) and we have had our first breakdown. Alan's cruiser alternator is now out of the car and been repaired by Toyota. We simply can't go on without the fridge that keeps the ice not working. Spent the night at a lodge just outside the town. Great food, people and of course pub. Woke up early to go and check the progress of .... Still not ready. The girls were robbed this morning by the local monkies who only managed to get a box of rusks and a old boiled egg.

  1. I have found when traveling that these initial difficulties come as a way to get us really focused and orientated, before we enter the heart of it. We find out quickly what sort of team we are in by the way people behave when something goes wrong - particularly when it goes wrong right at the beginning. I take this therefore as a good omen. A good omen means the African spirits are watching over you guys. So are we.
