The following day, we went to the post office, both feeling weak and tired because of the stomach bug we had. At the post office, we could see a whole pile letters and packages for us. It raised our morale no end. There were letters from Penny, friends, and family. Penny had sent music on tapes, Christmas presents of T-shirts and boxer shorts. It was super to receive all of this when we were feeling so bad. We returned to the campsite for a good read.
That evening my bad guts hit me badly. I was in and out of our zeriba all night. Also at the campsite, three Australians in a battered up old Land Rover named ‘mule’ had turned up. They were Brian, his girlfriend, Sam and Damen. They had been up to their elbows in grease and oil the day before mending their vehicle. They were great fun.
