As I said in an earlier blog I hope to post more on this trip. Today a Tuesday is the anniversary of our return to Johannesburg a year ago which you will note was a Sunday. The post is drawn directly from my travelogue which still has to be finalised and edited.
Sunday 31st May. Up early, breakfast, tidy up, pack – on road by 6.30? Long ride home. Got onto N14 to Upington, and then to Sishen. Saw the rust dust of the open cast iron ore mining, then Kuruman, then Vryburg. I don’t know where we got off the N14 but we headed for Parys and encountered some terrible roads. Parys dead on a Sunday afternoon but found an urban cowboy bar, replete with seating made out of car tyres and had our end of tour drink. Then onto Joeys. I was first to be dropped off, 6.30 ish.
