hit the road about 10, and stopped in a river for a nice swim about 12, then headed to hermanus for lunch. and about 2 in the afernnoon, we're stopped in road works, and i turn and look behind us. after travelling for about 4 hours, the sign on the far side of the road says cape town 110 km, a dazzling speed of 30 k per hour! so we decided to put the foot down a little bit and zipped up to george.
got into our chalet, and "took it easy" cos we we're drinking for al ong day the next day, so we only polished off a crate of savanna cider. which was fun.
next day we got up and went towards oustoorn, to race the ostriches and go to the cango caves, but luckily cameron decioded to ask his sister what time the rugby started at, and we were told 10.30, so we scrached the ostrics and caves till tomorrow and parked the car up and started drinking, 8.30am. possibly my earliest beer of the trip bar the ilhala ferry. messed around the pool for a few hours, and then headed down to the rugby. more beers, sausages, and the odd nap in between the games. great day for it too. cam managed to fall asleep during one of the finals and burnt the fuck out of his shins!
i think we missed three finals in all
the stadium really only filled up when south africa played, and they beat the all blacks in the final and the place went crazy.
afterwards th tents were pack with singing and dancing, it was a glimpse of what i hope the world cup will be like in 2010.
cam got hiumself onto the floor and started guzzling beer though a beer bong and a heap of huge black fellas poured four cans down on him ,which seemed to hit him later on when he hit the wall!
danced around in the tent for ages, and then met a girl who invited us ack to a party in her house, but we got bored waiting and i hopped on a dump truck and we decided to head into town.
for those who have never been to george, its a small little town which seems to have nothing in it bar a stadium and some bars, we went to a bar clalled zanzibar, i think, and there was some cool bands playing and they had a buig marquee, i managed to run in for free, and cam started shouting at me to come back and pay and i was liek, shut up the fuck up cam, they'll see me! so he got in, and licked the mark on his arm and pressed it on to me, old school!!
seeing as i didnt pay, it was my round, so i got some brandies, which had developed from beers in the morning, to singles in the afternoon after our kip, and then doubles with a half a coke in the evening onto our final few rounds of a double brandy with a smidglin of coke and a jagerbomb chaser! at one stage i was standing at the bar and some guy ordered two jager bombs, and i said, barman, make that three and he's paying, and he turns to me and stares at me and then goes "I'll buy it for you but only cos you talk funny!" which i was happy with.
another guy was staring at me for ages and i said to him, you alright bru? and he marches over to me squares up and goes, yea, i just really like your hat!
cam hit the wall about 2am, and we started trying to get a taxi home, which was nearly impossible, cam was trying to bribe police to bring us home, who had weaponsi nt eh back of their car, and then he tried to bribe an ambulance.
our taxi eventually turned up and we foun our new chalet!
it was such a cool day!
