Well it now seems I have caught the bug that has traveling through the ship, sore throat, congestion, coughing all night. Good thing after Durban I Have two sea days to try and get better before Capetown.  The last month has not been good for me , first I get shingles now this bug, that’s what happens when you are traveling in such close proximity with so many other people. 

 

we arrived in Durban with beautiful weather, I wish we had this weather for our safari yesterday but oh well, the one thing we cannot control.  Durban is the largest city in the KwaZulu-Natal and is very popular tourist destinations due to it’s lovely beaches and warm climate. The local tourist board provided us a shuttle bus to the beach promenaded and Shakaland which is a large mall/ tourist area.  This is Easter week so the area is very busy, lots of young people must be on Spring break.  We had a nice long walk along the beach promenade, did some shopping of course, and headed back to the ship early as this bug seems to be zapping my energy level.  The ship had an African Braai(BBQ) for us tonight by the pool, including all sorts of local specialites like Springbok, Ostrich, Zebra, lobster, plus some local South African beer, Castle, to wash it all down. 

till tomorrow
