What a wonderful 2 days this was. I had lots in common with Jill and Melissa and and from the minute we met I knew that this tour was going to be a special one. As much as our day on the Peninsula was a big event our visit to Kayamandi was the overriding special event for us all. On occasions it was a very emotional journey but the love and warmth of the people of the township carried us through all. Overall Melissa and Jill and Patti went with the flow in all that we did and it seemed as if we clicked on all our ideas and thoughts. This in turn resulted in a marvelous two days of touring and a very difficult saying of goodbye to these 2 wonderful ladies
