An Africa adventure

I WAS in Zanzibar and due to fly back on Saturday (November 3).

I never heard anything about 1time until a journalist from Die Burger called me on Friday afternoon at 4pm to ask how I was getting back.

I immediately got on the phone with my travel agent and she said she would try (to get me home).

Eventually I got a flight from Dar es Salaam to Nairobi, then Nairobi to Johannesburg.

This is how my day went: left hotel at 4am in Zanzibar, drove to Stone Town, then caught a ferry (two hours) to Dar es Salaam, spent six hours there; then flew to Kenya, spent three hours there (I drove around exploring Kenya); finally flew to Jozi and landed at 00:30 this morning (Sunday morning).

Later on Sunday I caught a flight back home to Cape Town.

I turned my 1time disaster into an Africa adventure.

Five African cities in two days: Stone Town, Dar es Salaam, Nairobi, Johannesburg and Cape Town.
