In the morning we walked around their yard. Saw the papaya trees. He also showed me the plumbing to go into the Mufulira building…sinks, toilets, piping. Derrick does a LOT! I’m so happy with what’s been done here with church buildings in the Copperbelt.
We leave Kitwe for Ndola where South African airlines usually has two flights a day to Johannesburg. On the way, Derrick got to taking and the speed accelerated. Police stopped him. Derrick professionally negotiates with them. Talked to the cop stopping us and chief. As usual, Derrick got off easily and the fine mostly went to the cops directly.
Our plane is a small CRJ which means we can’t take much carry on.
We landed at Johannesburg, then had to go through immigration because of coming in from foreign country Zambia. Then rechecking luggage to domestic Cape Town. We had several hours and took advantage of the Priority Pass lounge that was very good. Great Internet there! I was able to send my eNews copy to Chris Rowland along with other eMails. The Pringle house was still without power in the AM. No Internet. The lounge had lots of good food and comfort.
Then the two hour flight to Cape Town.
Vivian and Cathy Botha were there to greet us and take us to their home in Franschhoek about 45 minutes away. It was so good see them!!
They told us about the history of the area and it being settled by the Huguenots. Getting dark. Looking forward to Friday when we’ll visit a lot more.
