Next stop Jefferys Bay-world famous, so I was told, for being the home fo teh Billabong Surf championships-or somthing like that...famous for a beach called supertubes, which created waves that were really super. It was a nice little beach town; what really caught my attention was the Billabong, Ripcurl and Quicksilver outlet shops-oh how I love shopping! Stayed in a fantastic little hostel with a lovely owner and equally lovely dogs and guests-even got a free h...

So I finally made it to South Africa. After a 14hour flight I was whisked through the city-(it's huge!) to my hostel. JoBerg is actually quite nice and seems safe-easy to walk around during daylight hours, but not so sure how it works at nighttime. I got an early night in readyness for my trip to Zimbabwe. After coming back from Moz, I spent one more day in JoBerg...why? To see the apartied museum of course! It was very thought provoking from the start-when we ...
