My rest day in Zastron it rained the whole day. Had a nice and relaxing time. Met some nice people. Then I had to carry on to Rouxville. With me having a breakdown between Wepener and Zastron. I had some days to catch up on. So instead of splitting the 35km I walked it in one day.
Thanks Rita Jordaan for helping Lizanne with accomdation goodies. Also for the nice tea on arrival at your house Tannie Rene where I stayded thanks for every thing and getting the cyclist to come fix the brakes on the bed for me.
Rouxville was in darkness when I arrived there. It had been 2 days already that these people where without power. That evening in bed with a candle, thinking back to my childhood days on the farm.
Next morning got up and the power was on. Had to walk halfway to Aliwal, but decided no taking the day of. Will walk 35km to Aliwal the next day. Was very sad and missing my daughter, grandchild a lot.
