This was really a great weekend getaway !! The Sani Pass was probably the smoothest gravel road I've traveled on in a loooooooong time. The road from Sani top to Mokotlong....well that was quite a rough road.

Peter, the fun is worth every goosebump, and surprisingly it was not that cold, except when there is snow everywhere in Lesotho.... and gluhwein will warm you up brilliantly.

PS.... if you show the kids these photos.... the lowveld will be changed to the highlands of Lesotho in a flash :biggrin: :biggrin:
