On our new bike and off to Coffee Bay. You see thousands of these Rondavel's dotting the countryside as you travel. There must have been a big sale on aqua marine paint at the local hardware!

This Xkosa lady had no problem carrying our heavy panniers to the room. You see them on the side of the road carrying huge loads of firewood on their heads. (These days while talking on their cellphones!)

Exploring the Wild Coast on route to Hole-in-the-Wall.

Hiking down to Hole in the Wall. You have to leave the bike in the parking area.... watch out for the snot nosed parking lot gang. Hire one guy to watch your bike and tell the rest to piss off or they will all want to be paid!

Even the police are friendly in ZA! This chap wandered over just to chat about the motorcycle and wanted to know about our journey.
