Gem and Hannie’s Travel Diary

Location: Jo'burg, South Africa

MapHey guys and girlies

Gem and i have not been up to much over the past week. There is the slight problem of transport and not being able to rent a car. Driving is not as bad as i thought it would be. some interesting junctions but not to bad. You have to be 21 like most places to rent a car, so were pretty much stuck to going out at the weekends.

Jo'burg has been somewhat of a culture shock for me, in that there are bars on the windows, and gates within gates. Somewhat like a high security prison. So am feeling somewhat cooped up at times. Have been sleeping tons though.

Chris's family are really wonderful. Daleene and chris have been taking care of us, which is really lovely. its so nice to be back in a family environment again.

So far we've been bowling, visited the appartied museum, seen monte casino and its bird park and watched chris's cousins band play and be interviewed. Totally cool!!!! The guys are really good so hopefully there album will be released in the uk pretty soon too. amazing once in a life time experience!!! this weekend were meeting chris's girlfriend and going to visit the lion park and the caves. Should be very cool!

Well my lovelies i'm looking forward to seeing you all very soon and giving you all hug big hugs. It will be good to get home and breathe for a while.

(((((((((((((((((((Love you all)))))))))))))))))))))))
