Lesotho, the highest pub in Africa, and District 9

We enjoyed our stay at a great B&B in Durban. The owners really went out of their way to help us accomplish what we wanted to do while there. We went and saw the movie District 9, which I really wanted to see before leaving South Africa as it was filmed here. It is a one of the better sci-fi movies I have seen. The following morning I took a transfer on my own to the town of Underberg to join a 4×4 tour up a steep winding pass through the Drakensburg Mountains to the Kingdom of Lesotho. Leanne stayed in Durban to relax, explore a bit and picked up some books from local stores. I travelled with a fun group of travellers on the trip to Lesotho. We visited a rural family house to learn about the culture and country and to taste their homemade bread and beer. Later we went to the highest pub in Africa for lunch and drinks before returning back to South Africa. It was a good afternoon.

The following day we flew back to Cape Town. In the evening we had dinner and drinks with the Gosneys (Ron and I know each other from work). They are also on an extended trip around the world and are having quite the adventure. http://gogogosney.blogspot.com/

Tomorrow is our last full day in Africa and then we fly off to Malaysia to start the last leg of our around the world trip. Photos from the past while can be found in the following photo albums:
