Summing it all up.

Martin T. (to the right) had pleasant and fascination trip to South Africa in the period above. Martin has his party hat on.

The pictures above and below are thumbnails, meaning they are small copies of the real thing. You just click on the thumbnails, and you get the full picture in a separate window. And depending on your browser, it may be a little smaller to fit your screen size.
Just click the enlargement button to see the full picture. It looks like this .

The original plan was to go to Bloemfontain, one of the old capitals of SA, but the the driving went well, and Martin carried on to Welcome, where he lived and worked from 1977 to 1980.

And all December photos can be seen in a photo gallary.

To the left is the route taken from Kidd's Beach to Bloemfontain.

To the right, the bed and breakfast at Kidd's Beach. A rainy, misty morning, good for driving.

On the route up the coast, this is the typical landscape.

Wit rolling hills and rather lush due to the rainy season.

Shanty towns all over the place.

And a nice view over the rolling hills.

Rocky foundations for the road.

After a long driver, at last to Orange River that divides the provinces of Eastern Cape and the Freestate.

And cops with their R4 rifles (copy of the Israeli army rifle, Galil) shooting .223 and using AK47 magazines. Smart.

Big fat cop mama in charge of the road block.

Into the Freestate.

On the road to Welcome, these are the communication towers that supply you with your cell phone

After some 750 kms of driving, it was nice to crash into bed at Holiday Inn, renamed to Welcome Inn.

Then Saturday Dec 2nd, it was time to visit memory lane at Welcome where Martin worked from 1977 to 1980.
