I was itching for an adventure.
And this time, I had company.
The N4 took the heavily loaded Land Cruiser to Komatipoort where we booked into a Backpackers.
Not all Backpackers are equal though. I have been to some very nice ones. But this one wasn't so.
It wasn't a very good start to the trip.
At least we had a lovely dinner next to the Koipond at the Ecolux Hotel.
But at least the grime helped us get up early and be at the border post by 4:00. This time of year, the border is open 24/7, so we wanted to get through asap. We had a long push to our destination.
And I wanted to show Marilu some of Maputo.
Still, we waited in line and only got through by 5:30. Marilu basically slept all the way to Maputo. I woke her up in the outskirts to enjoy the sights.
We briefly stopped here and there for a pic, withdrew some money and generally just got into the day.
