Tea with Ollie outside the Queen's Mercy shop and off again. Just past this stop there were these 2 little girls on the road. They laughed so delightedly and from their bellies at the sight of my little proboscis on my helmet!
This day was heritage day and there were celebrations all around as well as horse-races. We passed lots of riders decked out on their horses travelling to Mpharane Village. We also came across this group of girls - the Ngobu dancers. They were fantastic - and loved the interaction with us. When I asked them a question they all answered in unison! They asked Doug to take a photo put them on Facebook as they wanted to be famous!

We then headed off to the Maria Zell Mission. It is a beautiful old mission which has a catholic school and boarding facilities attached.
From there it was about 5kms to Ongeluksnek - our resting place for the night. It was brilliant to get in early for the day and just spend time chilling and eating!
Vetkoek became a firm favourite of mine. Doug placed some strapping tape over the chafing as I had opened the skin up and quite frankly anytime on the bike was a form of torture! I had to laugh as the guys call this a rest day - and it really was. After all we only did 59kms and were out for 9 and 3/4 hours!
