The bus that caused the fuss
« on: October 19, 2017, 01:42:21 pm »

This week we are travelling in the Gouna Forest near Knysna and bring you a two piece video set on this short, but very scenic pass. But perhaps there is other information equally (or maybe even more) enjoyable and I quote an excerpt here: "One specific post this week featured the SAR&H bus which we specifically went to photograph at the George Transport Museum called the Tri-Compo. The post recorded well over 21,000 views, 272 Likes, 68 Shares and 62 interesting and fascinating comments - enough to make up a short book! No fiction writer could make up characters called Oom Plankoog, Oom Piet Lekkerlag, Koos Kierie, Mnr. Rooi Dodge or a schoolgirl called Vlakhaas (for her ability to run fast) and buses called Cremora, Majolie and Irhangqa (for the sound it made when driving over the farm cattle grid). You simply have to read the string and be entertained! It was not the bus itself which attracted the interest but the flood of childhood memories so many of our followers could identify with. If you understand Afrikaans, take the link provided and read up on some of those fascinating and entertaining stories. That will be 15 minutes well spent. Promise! Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/MountainPassesSouthAfrica/photos/a.145546238962849.1073741829.144647015719438/742249399292527/?type=3&theater
