now in the
(Orange) Free State,
near Bloemfontein:
nests of swallows
Around 18:00
I arrived at my
brother in law's
in Bloemfontein.
after driving just over 1,000 kms in 2 days. The car's AC blowing on my elbow had caused a gout-attack so I couldnot use my right arm.

but Suzan and Gus (right) pampered me and all I had to do the next day was to go with them to the Farmer's Market ....
and to the "Loch Logan Water Front" where I visited 1 cyber cafe and 3 toilets (after effects of colchicin)
