> Boys in the 'berg

Sunday, 6 June 2010 - 22:28

Day 248 - Sat 05 June 19,715 Drakensberg mountains, SA

Breaking the boys in gently we upped the distance travelled to 90 km today although they did have to recruit some five year old girls to push them up one particularly long hill! With the Drakensberg Mountains providing a stunning back drop it was a beautiful ride that included a Zulu dance show and some free beer at a polo game.

Now staying in a backpackers we have taken full advantage of the unexpected sauna and jacuzzi facilities to soothe the muscles. In fact the only downside to a great day apart from starting a course of worming medication and being treated like a wierdo for my bleached white beard was witnessing Dan applying cream to his saddle sores.

Apparently me and Bertha also made it on the BBC Breakfast TV news this morning - I'll look into getting a copy online.
