I used to be already in a foul temper due to the information I acquired from again residence concerning the individuals renting my apartment bailing on me on the final second. I had been in a foul temper about this for a few week now. So when the climate turned bitter and I needed to proceed biking east, I wasn’t in one of the best of spirits. Nonetheless, it was only a brief 2-day bike journey from Burgersdorp to Girl Gray, South Africa – my subsequent vacation spot. So I sucked it up and cycled east.
Within the metropolis of Aliwal North I finished to get some bananas and water at a nook market and gave just a few bananas to the younger boy who “watched my bicycle” whereas I used to be contained in the store. I usually don’t give something to those individuals, however as a result of there was nobody else round, I gave the boy a few of my meals. He appeared pleased with that… and so was I.
Then I spent the evening tenting about 10 kilometers east of town, behind a barbed wire fence, in a cow pasture close to a big nation property. It rained all evening, it was extraordinarily chilly, and although I used to be solely on the highway for 2 days between Burgersdorp and Girl Gray, it felt like a complete week.
