Makiti found.







It boggles my brain to think that a shipment can get "lost" in transit & instead of being off loaded at Durban be transported to Joburg !!!! Anyway it was found & DH & I did one of our quick turn around trips to the big city to collect the lost assignment - it entails leaving Durban at 10.30am Friday with our huge heavy load trailer so its not a fast journey & overnighting in Joburg, picking up at 7am on Saturday morning & a very slow ride back to Durban. Joburg is only 5 & 1/2 hours away but the pick up point is in Brits about another hour away in the back of beyond, anyway all went really well & we are home ( I so love my home LOL) & we stopped to refuel truck, trailer & ourselves at a tiny place called Makiti - 23 kms from Warden ( sorry folks but in the middle of nowhere.) It was so unique - just have a look at the photos really lovely.
