I feel so pleased that i got to spend time with the people of Potch.
I visited one of the local m/cycle shops (Biker's Paradise ) i asked about some parts i wanted and it was no trouble at all. They did not have the bits in stock but the owner, Anton, said he'd have them the next day. One thing lead to another and i found myself back there at the end of the day having beers and chats with Anton and some of the local m/cyclists. A great afternoon.
One of the guys (Johan) asked me back to his home to share a meal with his family.
At Johan's and Margarets home that nite i was to learn more of the local area and what i would see on my future travels in South Africa . I must have been a good boy that nite as i was asked to return to spend another in their company and also to sleep over. We spent the nite looking at photos, eating, and discussing the joys of traveling by m/cycle.
The next morning i went with Johan to his place of work. Now this was a worry as he and Margaret are in the Police Force. All things where cool, i was shown around the Offices and meet some of Johans team and even sat in on the morning meeting, fantastic.
After that i said my goodbys at the Bike shop and road out towards Kimberly.Posted by Brian Bayley at February 02, 2007 05:35 PM GMT
