While I have time

We arrived in Romansfontein at 14.30 and it gave us a chance to recover and do bike admin. I feel much more human.
Stefanie and her daughters are incredible hosts and have fed us to the hilt.
We managed to get all our washing done to get rid of the wood smoke from last night.
So we are sitting in borrowed clothes and drinking copious cups of tea.
We are reunited with Pierre, Louis, Mark and Carl. Carl is an absolute machine. The length of rides he is putting together are amazing despite broken shoes, stripped gears.
He was really worried for us yesterday although he has only met us once.
So hopefully a good nights sleep will hit my cold a bit and who knows what tomorrow will bring. It is what it is.
