anecdote

12 Aug

On fetching the car at the brandspakingnew King Shaka Airport in Durban (the car which would take us north to diving in Sodwana), I was involved in the following exchange:

Saartjie: So how do we get out of here to the N2?

Car Hire Guy: Drive through that exit, turn right, go across the circle, then turn left and past the toilet to the highway…

S: A toilet! Why don’t people just use the toilet in the airport building?

CHG: (funny look) Tollgate.

Hmmm. It provided hours of mirth for the scissor and me. All the way up and down the N2 as we approached a toll, we’d cackle loudly and proclaim we needed to use the toilet.

    Hi Saartjie!
    Came across your blog through your comment on Nothing but Bonfires.. I couldn’t resist finding out who was behind the very South African name on the list!

    It sounds like you are embarking on an adventure involving a boat and the sea… just like my family and I! (Our’s will be slightly different to your’s, but still: adventure!!)

    I will definitely check in at your blog in the future to see how it’s going.
    All the best!

      Awesome! Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to also keeping up with YOUR adventures… Aaah, you’re heading off “soon”! I’m so jealous. We have another 5 months of finishing work and preparations… The waiting game is torturous.
