Still trekkin’

You will have noticed that I have a surprising affection for the Afrikaaners .. and the spirit of the Great Trek lives on, although in a somewhat debased form.  You’ll find it embodied in the person who owns the Internet Cafe at Knysna Quays …

After his computer had dropped its connection for the umpteenth time, I ventured to suggest that his connection might be a little fragile.  To which he responded as if I had questioned not his bandwidth but his parentage.  Indeed he had 1 meg of connection speed – the biggest and fastest connection in the whole of Southern Africa.  To put it in a nutshell, my connection couldn’t possibly measure up to his and I could take myself back to the hairdressers and girls blouses of the Cape.

Yes indeed.  Still trekkin’ – and going nowhere.
