Day 9 24/1/2015
So today is the day we drive up the Sani Pass. We got up early (way to early for being on holiday for my liking) and we got eveything together but then had to wait for Kieron’s friends to arrive. At last we all pilled into Ron’s car and away we went to Lesotho. We picked up breakfast on the way. The tour left at 9:00 am and we arrived about 15 mins before then. I changed into warmer clothes and we grabbed our jackets and buddled into a 4×4 and set off. There had been a lot of rain in that area a few weeks before hand and the pass was badley damaged. Luckily we made it to the top but a 4×4 bukkie got stuck half way up with guide and his passengers. We think they walked up or managed to get a lift.
At the top we went to Besotho village and tried some of there home made bread and beer and bought a few things. We then went to the highest pub in Africa for lunch. On the way down again was more scary and for some on known reason we got down safely and back into South Africa.It really was an adventure!
The best bread ever!

Day 8 23/1/2015
Today is Friday and this evening we will be celebrating both Ron and I engagement and his turning the big 30! Not much happened happend during the day.
So when the evening came we got dressed to go out at this place called Stokers Arms (A bit like Forries) to meet everyone. Not that I knew anyone there. It was fun I must admit. It was an old railway station. It was really nice. Unfortuanlly we didn’t stay too late because we had to get up early the next morning to go up the Sani Pass.
