On Monday morning early the KLR arrived on time in Windhoek. Customs took longer than planned but around noon I left for Gobabis, the Namibian/Botswana border and Botswana.
The further I drove through the beautiful, beautiful Kalahari savanna and bushveld the more my heart became jubilant. I realised again that I have only one home: Africa.
Try and picture the following: a deep blue winter sky, sunshine, yellow grass, and then late afternoon oryx antelope, red hartebeest, blue wildebeest, kudu antelope and many ostriches next to the road.
At sunset I pulled off the road and had a supper of baked beans and corned meat. Priceless in the African savanna.
Africa … home.
On Tuesday I had fun with the donkeys next to the road. Since reading the blog Bileam se donkie I had to smile every time I see these cute animals.
Then I saw two donkeys, one dead. And suddenly I had to think back to two posts on Bileam se donkie, Die Prys van Liefde. The Afrikaans speaking people can really go and read that. It is a moving true-life love story.
Right, our festive dinner of 1 September:
I am excited to see who has booked already. It is going to be a GREAT evening!
Accommodation costs R 150.00 per person and not R 200.00 as I wrote earlier.
I got very good news yesterday. It is now 99% sure that there will be ONE Kate book that will be sold to the highest bidder. That may be the only Kate ever.
I am going with the KLR to the dinner, leaving Naboomspruit on that beautiful Spring Day at eleven. Are there any bikers going with their bikes that would like to ride with?
I am so excited about our dinner. See YOU there!
