MapHi Everyone,
Our 3rd day here & finally feeling "normal" after the tiredness of the trip. So far we have mainly got the feel of the locality with trips to the shops (huge malls) & eating places which have great food which is amazingly cheap for us with our strong dollar.
So far the impression is of overwhelming security and the only ones to see walking on the street are not white with only 2 exceptions - no walking the dog & running around the block here! Not even checking on the street when the innumerable dogs we can hear go ballistic.The hospitality has been wonderful & it's great to see Mike & Veronica so happy to see family & friends & listen to all the reminiscing.
Today we are up early & off to Soweto to do a tour there. Decided it was better to be picked up from here than try to find our way around! Also awaiting the news that our wee granddaughter has arrived safely today .Weather fine & coolish.
