And we left for holiday. Whohoo!! All the way down to the South Coast which should have been a 7 hour drive- except we took a "shortcut" over Richmond and Ixopo. BIG mistake. It added another hour and a half to our drive. It's lovely countryside with rolling hills,forests and sugar plantations. But the road is narrow and potholed. With lots of trucks on it. And roadworks. Plus we were desperately looking for a bank. We eventually found one in Ixopo- but when I mentioned that I would like to transfer money to another bank the staff was clearly in a flap.And called the manager. Who asked me very kindly if I would mind drawing the cash and then walk across the road to deposit the cash into the other bank. LOL clearly transfers are a challenge in small towns.
