Then around the corner of the watercrossing we came across these guys fishing for barbers... the get into a pipe feeding one of the canals and skep it with the skep net. They claim there is one with the head about 20-25 cm...  :o but to slippery to catch...

Hehehe the bad thing of being the only lady on the trip, you get chased with a barber... but Sandra was a great sport...

Must say the road is in excellent condition!

Alwyn - jy gee beslis nuwe meaning aan "Het jou, katvis!"

(Nog altyd verstaaan net laities skree dit as hy dalk 'n stanerd 7 cherrie in sy klas aan die gwap gegryp het vir 'n cheap thrill)

Great RR en pics - volgende keer maak ons saam stoffies!  :thumleft:
