After ten years in KwaZulu Natal I finally got to see downtown Durban as the natives do! I took a walking tour of the markets area in the center of town. Me and my guests, together with our local guide Johnny, took a few taxi rides (local minibus transport) as part of the tour. It was very snug in the full taxis.
We had a beautiful view over the city from Morningside at the start of the experience and ended up enjoying a Bunny Chow (Indian curry in a bun) at the Durban North beach.
Four interesting hours for anyone who wants to experience the real Durban!
This is the month of ’round’ anniversaries for me. A few days ago I celebrated my 10th year living and working in South Africa and at Thanda Safari.
Today, with my 60th birthday, I officially join the South African pensioners’ age club. But not to worry, I do not plan to retire any time soon. I will continue to capture the beauty of the African wilderness with my camera and teach others to do the same!
PS: The picture of me hiking! was taken by my brother Michael on our recent – very enjoyable – trip to the Drakensberg Mountains.
