After 3 long workdays we finally had our first night out. We were invited to Stellenbosch to the birthdayparty of Julien (23, female, originally from Namibia, now living in Stellenbosch and studying phyisics)
We (ehr...I) first drove the wrong way, although that didn't matter because I was fed some beer ;) Soon after we reached to correct way.
In general the traffic is very steady and polite. If you want to take over (on a one lane road), get close to the one in front of you (=bumperkleven) and he'll eventually go to the emergency lane so you can pass. If you want to thank him you've to flash your alarm lights once.
A 45min drive later (what IS a speed limit?) and a 10mins drive on the maze-estate we finally reached Stellenbosch.
What a surprise. A braai was on!
for most South Africans (+me) the Braai African style ment:
- 19:45 arrive
- have a drink
- hm, a drink?
- have some snacks (tomatoes with healthy stuff on them)
- play some ping pong
- play some beer pong
- actually see someone putting some meat on the braai
- 23:00 meat time (flush it away with beer)!
At our way back home we discovered driving on the right side is still in our nature, lol.
