Sept. 27 – Back to Jo’burg

With a huge sigh of relief, we met Fisher, the representative of SS Rental Cars, at the Malawi airport and eagerly turned over the Nissan sedan to him – minus the two hubcaps we had lost because they weren’t cable tied as the remaining two were. None of us had said it aloud during the trip, but after returning the car, we all admitted that we didn’t really believe the old clunker was going to make it through the almost 1,000-mile journey of rough roads in Malawi and Zambia.The quirky, scratched up rental car, which had started the journey with a flat tire, wound up serving us well. Talk about grateful!

We flew back to Johannesburg, South Africa, arriving at our hotel late afternoon. After a short time to freshen up, we took the airport shuttle back to the Intercontinental Hotel for a celebratory farewell dinner in the Quills Restaurant. Judy had one last serving of ostrich, and we shared one last chocolate dessert as well as a bottle of South African Riesling.
