I not too long ago wrote an extended article about how I mailed my bicycle from Poznan, Poland to Cape City, South Africa and defined why I mailed the bike, how the method labored, and what occurred when the bike was lastly “delivered” when it reached it’s closing vacation spot. Listed below are some further pictures from that day.
Anthony, the motive force from the African Bikers mountain bike tour, was variety sufficient to supply to drive me to the Capemail customs workplace in Epping, South Africa and he went into the workplace with me whereas his girlfriend, Tanya, waited within the automotive.
After selecting up my bike, we drove to a close-by on line casino the place I first needed to take away the knife from my backpack and take it again to the automotive. Then safety informed me I couldn’t put on my baseball hat (they needed to have the ability to see my face on the safety cameras), after which after I requested Anthony to take an image of me enjoying slots with South African Rand, a lady in safety ran over and informed me I needed to delete the photograph from my digital camera. I hit the again button on the digital camera, pretending that the photograph had been deleted, but it surely actually had not. Thus, the photograph beneath.
Anthony and Tanya and I ate lunch at a Steak/Mexican restaurant contained in the on line casino (I had a quesadilla and was surprized when Tanya informed me she had by no means heard of Albert Einstein or his well-known method: E = MC2). I paid for lunch, simply to thank the younger couple for driving me to the customs workplace and serving to me out. With out them, it might have taken me a full day to seek out the workplace, put my bike again collectively after which experience it throughout Cape City again to the hostel the place I used to be staying.
Anthony then dropped me off on the Inexperienced Elephant hostel in Observatory and later that evening I put my bicycle again collectively once more. It felt nice to lastly have my bicycle again in my possession.
