Monday, July 21st, Calvinia, South Africa


Calvinia is like Craddock, only a smaller town (four main streets).  The museum was also the town’s synagogue.  We’re lodged in connected stucco structures on a main street which contain quaint little living rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms with furniture dating from the early 1900’s.   
Today was a driving day, and our first day with this tour group and larger tour vehicle.  There are currently nine travelers, and we’ll pick up five more in a few days.  The seats sit higher off the ground, but the first step up to the bus is lower, to Pat’s delight.  
Kembo had ambitions of getting us here earlier in the day (2pm), but the road work delayed us again until 4pm.  It matters when planning rest and toilet stops, and we did have one side of the road ablution.  Once we checked in, we walked a few blocks to the museum and back.  We’re all having dinner at the hotel’s main facility at 7pm, and I’ll upload this from their wifi while there.
