It’s quite satisfactory that I’ve gotten to this point; less than two weeks until I reach Ye Olde M-towne; before feeling resentful to this damned log and it’s constant need for maintenance. Most of these e-lectronical journals falter after a significantly shorter period. As to the cause of the scorn, it’s not due to a lack of observations to make: I could put into prose a commentary on attitudes to HIV / AIDS here, from governmental denial to animism and ancestor worship that leads to a fatalism and an absence of personal responsibility and to the contrast of t-shirts some infected young people wear that declare their status; I could lament the quality of governance on this continent; I could pontificate about the Evangelicals I have conversed with and how certain of my views on them were reinforced but many unexpectedly challenged; I could put a case on affirmative action and the renaming of anything too European for the current climate; or less seriously I could relay the day I spent at a game reserve (photos are up: rhinos!); and given more enthusiasm I could probably compose passages on a score of other topics, each deserving of a thorough treatment.

However, I can’t be arsed. I am completely unenthused.

Today is my last day in Grahamstown. Tomorrow I drive to Cape Town, some 900 kilometres away. There looks to be much of interest there which should snap me out of my feeling of meh.

Hey dude! Was checking out your photos and they all look pretty cool! Ahhh memories!

I understand what you mean about it being a tough gig updating the blog and all. I'm in London now, but still have about a weeks worth of updates to slog through, though mine are more of an event log than a reflection on current events as you enjoy writing about!

So it's not too long till you get home ey? You looking forward to it? Hope you enjoy your remaining time abroad my friend.

I reckon your approach would be more challenging and arduous, so full respect to ya. I'm home in a week now, and I think it's time. Also I gots to hang with my various clans.

I hope your time is still rolling smoothly too. Reading on and between the lines, I think it is.
