Today was a really rainy day so the choices of what we could do were limited. In the end we decided to go to the mall. (yes it is very 'tradition African') We found a Body Shop which sold the same items as we get at home for half the price which is always good. We also found chocolate fudge for a pound.
As the weather had cleared up a bit by this point we decided to go to the monkey sanctuary which is quite near to where we're staying. It was good because the monkeys were allowed to roam free and the visitors were in the cage. Apparently they dont run away because of the electric fencing. There was a monkey in the sanctuary who was a recovering alcoholic which is something I havent heard of before, we were told that his previous owner used to give him a bottle of brandy a day and with that Im not really surprised that he became an alcoholic.
On the way home mum managed to drive us into a totally black community township where we were the only white people in a very obvious white car. I was a bit nervous to say the least.
We're hoping the weather will look up soon and we've been told by the locals that it will so we'll just have to wait and see.
