We arrived in the rain grateful for the fact we had our own room and would not have to put up the tent in the rain. It was raining worse than we had seen so far and was pretty cold even by England standards. Places out here are not built for the rain so we stood in a cold kitchen cooking while parts of trees kept hitting the roof. Slept in quite late the next day as we deffinately needed the sleep and were getting used to sleeping in a nice soft bed for a change instead of the floor. Next day we headed to Sandton to meet Kathy and Brent for our first meal out in South africa. Good to catch up with our friends before they headed back to Australia. Kathy now loaded down with a lot of souveigners that she proablly would not get in to Australia through customs! The ostrich feather duster reminded me a lot of nan cleaning the cob webs in the flat when we were kids she would have thought it was a really funny gift. We spent the rest of the afternoon walking around the mall only buying us both a pair of the cheapest trousers we could find for Morocco. That evening was pretty loud around the hostel as seems weekends are for partying with very loud bad music. The next day our only venture out was to collect our tickets for the cricket then spent the rest of the day lazing around reading books hoping that the sun would come out for the cricket. Another loud night of bad music and a few glasses of wine on our part as if you can't beat them might as well join in. Also managed to get some instructions to get us to Centurion for the cricket the next day. We were glad to see the sunshine the next day but still skeptical in our trousers and our rain coats tucked away in our bags but the sun did not let us down and it was a gorgeous day. We managed to catch local transport to Centurion without too much hassle which was also very cheap and arrived at the cricket only half an hour late. We did however sit at the wrong side and only managed to find our friends at half time. Aaron was pleased with South Africas 250 runs at the end of there batting I was just trying my best to follow the game. Strange being surrounded by South African fans but great atmosphere almost like a festival feel without the music. Everyone drinking and laying around in the sun made for a great day. The fact England won made it all the better as after the first few we had watched we thought we had come to watch England loose. Getting home wasn't as simple as we thought though, Two policemen behind us said that we shouldn't get local transport back as it was dangerous and felt we were lucky to get there in one peice said it was probally our strong English accents that helped us. We never felt at any time in any danger everyone had been so helpful. Unfortunately when we got out seemed there were no buses back to Joberg and a nice couple offered us a lift which meant there were eight of us packed in a small car. Felt bad when the police stopped us but as soon as the guys said they were helping out two tourists they let us go on our way. As our instructions clearly said we got off at corlett drive but we could not find our hostel for trying we must of been wandering around for an hour and everyone we asked tried there best to help us but had never heard of our hostel. Finally a couple out for a late evening walk called us over saying that they had seen us so many times and it was obvious we were lost. They proceeded to take us back to there home and spent ages with us trying to locate our hostel in the map and phone directory. We eventually found our road on our map and they drove us back. And everyone tells you people in Joberg are only out to mug you. We gave them some money to say thanks which they were utterly shocked by but the kindness of strangers deserves some reward. Our final day in South Africa is also gorgeous sun again so spent the day lounging around, Aaron was the only one brave enought to go in the pool but only lasted a minute as it was utterly freezing. I decided to stick with a nice hot shower instead. Next destination Morocco after a 14 hour plane ride.
