The bus route went over the pass I already used twice starting from where the Oliphant's River comes out of the mountains. After that we drove down to Ohrigstad and from there to Lydenburg. The countryside was getting flat again, and quite boring, so I mostly read and dozed off a few times.
Arriving in Pretoria, I asked the driver again to drop me off in Midrand, just to be sure he wouldn't forget. Sean, the American I met in Maputo, told me that he wanted to stop in Inhambane, but nobody told him and when he finally asked, they were already north of Xai-Xai. So I wanted to make sure that wouldn't happen to me. The driver told me to relax again, which I did again.
The next day was a public holiday and we went to visit her sister and niece in another part of the city. We had a nice day with plenty of food and wine. On my last night here, we went to Emperor's Palace Casino to watch a show.
I was then bound to Gaborone without knowing where I would sleep the night when I would get there at about 9 or 10 in the evening.
