This was really the last full day of our holiday and we spent it well visiting some falls and the third largest canyon in the world. For a while we followed the pioneers of the great trek.
It was a good experience but the heat was a bit much.
The highlight of the day for me was a brief conversation with Christopher our driver over lunch. We spoke about polygamy, the cost of education and health care. I also explained why the people of Wales didn't have to pay for prescriptions.
I now have the easy impressions of a two week tourist. Many, if not the majority in this country are poor. Many work exceedingly hard to give themselves and their children a better life.
Over a fortnight I have been impressed by many things in South Africa. Above all, I have been impressed by its greatest asset - it's people.
This country has a long way to go. I got the impression that it's getting there.
