Distance today: 50.2 km (Accumulated: 19363.0 km)
Elapsed time: 05:29:49
Start 09:15am at white sign \"Swaziland National Library, Lavumisa\", 500m from the Lavumisa/Golela border to South Africa.26c, half clear and l. wind. Finish 17:21pm. at entrance of the \"Ghost Mountain Inn\" on the exit rd. through Mkuze city, 3km off the N2 highway to Cape Town. 36c, a few clouds and medium wind.
... Quite a stage into South Africa: 50-51 km (the gps-tracking went off midway so the distance is a bit unprecise ! It appears to be aprox. a km shorter on the gpsreading than on the map-count). It had it all - steep hills, sightings of giraffes 20meter from the road, sighting of the runningstroller weighting in at 40kg just in front, sight of the sweat when running and pushing the stroller on steep climbs, sights of a lonely roadside salesman of softdrink cans just as we were about to finish our last supplies for the day ( Lucky :-) and finally sight of a place to stay: The Ghost Mountain Inn !
Time to REST now.
