Hola! This happened back in the beginning of November but I havent had access to the internet so I am adding entrys now...

So the last thing i did in Storms River was going on that horse ride. It was good fun apart from when the horses escaped...but luckily we found them again a bit further up the road.
I then tried to get myself to Durban as qhick and cheaply as possible..it proved pretty tough. After many phone calls and dramas I managed to get a ride by two dutch girls to Port Elizabeth. We had a pizza (a very good one I might add, and it was even without chilli?!?!) on the Boardwalk which is the touristy marina kind of place and then they were sweet enough to let me stay in their house. It was a student house with twelve 19-yearolds! Oh dear...but it was an experience.

Took the 6am Greyhound coach to Durban the next morn ing. It was a long journey but saw some funny movies on the road. The landscape changes pretty dramatically and it gets very very rural. Going through the Transkei (where Mandela grew up) was a bit scary, it didnt feel very welcoming and I felt like a tourist on a tour bus.. But in the end i got to Durban. Durban didnt really do it for me but I did have one of the best curries I have ever had there!! The backpackers was ok and I met some fun Americans that i had a few drinks with. This then turned in to a random trip to a proper dodgy pool bar until 4 in the morning..nuts but fun!

In the morning i got ready for the baz bus to pick me up to go to HlueHlue (forgot how to spell it..) to meet Jim and Suus in Sodwana!!
