Our flight was delayed leaving JNB and we did not finish clearing customs until around 7:30 but were so thankful when we cleared it all and there were our names on a cardboard sign.............

Le Bamboo no longer has a restaurant or bar as we had read. Even though we were tired thought it would be nice to relax with a drink. We had bought some samosas from a street vendor and now just need a drink.

Krishna offered to take us to find something to drink. Drove around the neighborhood and everything was closed. Drove us across the longest bridge ....not very long to an area where we found a oriental man standing outside his business visiting with someone. Krishna gets out and talks to him. Oh, he has a pinotage and some cold beer. Back to Le Bamboo where we sat on our balcony and enjoyed some wine and beer.

Le Bamboo is just fine as a stopover hotel. We did not get to see much of the neighborhood except to
say this is a non-tourist section of town. Did not look threatening in any way though. Back to the airport where we once again paid over luggage fee and were off to Madagascar.
