Word Riders day 2: Modimolle to Makhado

Yesterday we met the Riders in Warmbaths (Bela Bela) and accompanied them to the Weesgerus resort just outside Nylstroom (Modimolle). There we prepared 100 quarter portions chicken on a barbeque… much better than those Aussies on Masterchef… an open fire and cooking- bring it on!

This morning the group devided in two, one half going to Church in Nylstroom, the other in Naboomspruit. Afterwards the riding started in earnest. We crossed the Tropic of Capricorn going North- it is always significant- yes, I spent more than 98% of my life far down South on the globe!

Tonight we are staying at the Lalapanzi resort outside Louis Trichardt (Makhado). It is an absolutely beautiful place, I would really recommend it to travelers. At the moment there is a film crew here as well, shooting a film on the Aussie soldier Breaker Morant- quite a controvertial historical figure around here…

Slowly our group of bikers are gelling, getting to know one another. We are enjoying good food and lots of laughter. My one classmate just told us about this old lady in his congregation. She said to him that after her husband lost his mind, he is really enjoying the pastor’s sermons…

Lots of adventure ahead- but now I am too tired to tell more… Enjoy your Sunday evening!
