The return - second part*

The return 2nd part - Le retour 2ème partie
first part .. \O ..

13.10 Upington

The flight went well, we landed 10 minutes in advance and neither my friend nor the car renter are there 0*\
Upington is small and we can leave at the last minute ;-)

I go directly to my friend Evelyne where the drama is being prepared. After greeting the family, we go to the dogs, which have a large enclosure that separates them from the workers and :shock: stupor one of them, Barnie, is missing ... he remained lying on a blanket, along the great niche ... it does not move ... he died, died from his "good" death, later said to us the vet O-/

Everyone is crying :-(
A Cognac becomes a necessity to boost morale ... it's only 11:00 in the morning...

I still made no shopping for the next day, I have to move me a little bit, I have to go shopping for 2 weeks and then for five weeks for the drinks, my nephew will arrive a Sunday, it is imperative if we want to drink beer, savanna and amarula and why not some wine ... red :yes:

We start, Judit, the mother of my friend who also needs a change, and I, and that's racing ...
All Departments, I ordered the meat, with the salesperson looking for me in every corners of the store to ask if it suits me, hoping not to forget anything

I do not have the head for that. Wood, water, fire lights, yougurts, cheese, vegetables, fruits, household paper, foil, salt, pepper, spices, coffee, tea ... and what else -O-
I have a list for the necessary, but need some ideas to surprise my nephew, as I would like he likes the Kgalagadi and especially, he wanted to go back O:V
I must not be wrong 0*\

And yet ... he has loved Kgalagadi, but maybe not be all that I bought =O:

It's dark when we return, the car is more than full.
Meanwhile 'my' car was delivered and I transfer everything in the trunk and on the back seat.
I will organize me in the park. I have to share my suitcase into small packets easier for me to carry from one camp to another O:V

Good food, as usual with my friends ... a good night ... and I'm almost ready for the Grand Depart,
tame the "monster",
stop at the bank, where it took me over an hour to change Swiss francs banknotes :twisted:
and I left with a "Monopoly", in a well seeing envelope... with the name of the bank O-/ 0-

250 km of straight road, not so secure, especially the last km with herds of goats on the road, sheep, goats with little ones on the sides, pedestrians, bicycles, meerkats and other squirrels ...

I arrive in the park around 16h, one gives to me the chalet No. 15, near the shop where I can't park, because the two car's places are already occupied by a car ... :X: Alone in the world ... alone in the park

First galley, more than an hour to unload everything!

But I am in O\/ O/\ O\/ ... .. for 2 nights at Twee Rivieren and 7 weeks in the park O/\ O/\ O/\

Completely excited to finally be back in the Kgalagadi, it is impossible for me to sleep.
