Friends have a blast

What we love most about South Africa is that we have a world in one country. On the one hand we have the glorious ocean and beaches and to the interior we have the mountains. We took a weekend break-away to the mountains and the land beyond the Drakensberg to the eastern Free State. We flew in our airplane, a Sling 2-seater ZDL, and travelled together with our mates Marc and Lee in their similar plane SAA and Luois and Jeanette in JAL. We were joined in Clarens by a 4th Sling and their owners and we enjoyed a weekend of fun, drinking and eating!!
First stop after landing was for some biltong and a drink with lunch

Cheers to the queers, applause.. etc as we take our 15th or so drink/shooter

The eastern Free State town of Clarens below us, encircled by mountains

A few clouds too many over the mountains as we steer a course to avoid them to the left and under.

Durban's Bluff and the harbour, city and northern beaches in the distance as we connect with the Air Traffic Controller at Virginia Airport who saw us in to land at our home base.

Yes, we landed safely back in Durban - here's a pic of an appropriate painting we saw in Clarens.
