Hey guys, cheers for your messages saying that you are reading this thing! the last few days have been pretty good. the monkeys no longer bite me and have accepted me as one of them. this morning I fed them some spaggetti, which is the cutest thing ever. on SAturday I went over to the other neighbours. I forget how big his farm is but it take him 2.5 days to go around the perimter on horseback! he took us into the breeding camp on the back of his bukkie and we saw loads of game incluing sprinbok, impala, kudo some native SA cow and some other animals but I can't spell their zulu names! he has 600 cows over there and has names for all of them. it was so much more natural than game parks that I've been to before and we got to get out and walk around to get a bit closer to the animals. on Sunday I went on a bit of a walk thru the surrounding area. over the othe side of the hill here there is the most amazing view of the valley and most of the paths are made by animals so it feels like you're the first person ever to go up there. (pictures in a couple of weeks I promise, I've taken nearly 800 already). I also foud a huge cows/zebra skull but don't think I'll get it thru customs. the sunsets here are spectacular although the novelty of getting up at the crack of dawn is begining to wear off. Right, I am sure that more has happened than this but I'm using a different internet cafe (ie one that isn't free) so am running out of credit, will try to reply to messages etc on Friday.
