More out of Africa

Today was the public holiday and I had been hoping to go for a ride but the weather has been seriously crap all day! Saturday and Sunday were great but we had to go to Capetown in the bakkie because I had some major stuff to carry, just my luck! We got back in time to go for lunch to my friend X Kotze's place, he said to be there at 12 for an oxtail pot and when we got there I asked him "Where's the pot?" expecting to get a good plate of oxtail and he said, "I'm just about to put it on." Shit man! He was expecting to cook a quick pot of oxtail, luckily Adi had a pressure cooker and we managed to eat at about 3pm. I was a good pot though!

I have got some more out of Africa photos to show you, I love these pictures because there is always something interesting going on;How's this ambulance? Isn't that great? Just not too good for trauma cases!This inventive fellow has got his "Walkman" sorted out, we would see this sort of thing while travelling through the Transkei region of the Eastern Cape.Here's another one depicting a somewhat dicey motorcycle and trailer combination! At least I have got something about bikes in this blog entry.
I am hoping to go down to Capetown one day this week or at the latest next week to get a new zorst can fitted, while Janet and I were down at the "Viper lounge" the week before last I heard a bike arriving before I saw it and it sounded just so damn good. I went outside to see what it was and it was a BMW similar to mine! I went to speak to the rider and he had bought the slip-on from the agents, he said it improved performance and fuel consumption but that is secondary! It just sounded so bloody good so I gotta get me one, I got all the details so I will let you know all about it.
Here's hoping for a ride real soon, I'm a summer person - can't wait for it to get here!
