We said our goodbyes to the amazing staff at Motswiri...everyone really made us feel comfortable, playing with Sora and spoiling us rotten. Then it was off in our car headed for Sun City. Along the way Steve got pulled over by some cops who claimed he was speeding at over 90kms/h even though we had just accelerated from a stop sign and we were also driving behind a truck and another car. Hmmmm. And, of course, to make it easier for us, the cops said we could pay for the ticket on the spot with cash and not have to go to court. Before we left Motswiri, Kevin had warned us that there were some unscrupulous cops in the area who made it a regular practice to try to extort money out of tourists. So Steve did some fancy talking and basically didn't give in to them and I guess the cops thought we weren't worth the bother so they let us go.
We made it to Sun City in time to check the place out and have dinner before it got dark.
I gotta say, I was a little disappointed with Sun City after all the hype I've heard about. If you've been to Vegas before, Sun City is nothing. It's a good thing we didn't plan on staying there for the night because the room rates are ridiculously expensive. We headed back to Joburg instead to crash the night before our early morning flight to Cape Town.
