 Some Rides End Better.
Rietvlei Farm for a bit of an extended work out.

There are still honest people in this world. Got back to find my GPS missing from my backpack. The young lad at the entrance gate was walking toward me and I told him I had to go back and look for my GPS. "Oh this must be yours as he whipped it out of his pocket. Found it over there."

Asked his name and he replied "Henry". I said, sorry, what's your AFrican name? He replied with "Mathumbo", I'm from Mogwali (sp).

I told him to never lose his honesty quality.

Told the owners that they have a hard working, honest lad.

The ending was far better than the ride.
