"It’s beautiful here, but very cold - it snowed the day/night before I got here. Melted off, but still until only warm enough - with all the clothes on I have - when the sun is high. Not sure I’ll stay tonight after all - may go to Maseru -main town & lower - tonight and then? Should have good wifi there - it’s Very iffy here!"Jump to full entry

She ended up being back a lot earlier than planned so had breakfast with us! Claudine needed to go into work to finish off some stuff so Elaine said she'd come meet us and take us back to the farm after showing us around Bloemfontein. Claudine said she'd meet us there later. In the end we didn't leave the house until about 12pm and...Jump to full entry
