The new look, this is how I drive / walk to work

If you have ever been to Grahamstown, take into account that donkey carts are a normal sight. They are like Oprah, they are everywhere (Corne and Twakkie 2005).

So here you can see me riding to work with my new 2 donkeypowered cart. It is a great experience, much like a convertible, but without the irritating opening and closing of the roof. Also, it gives you a complete new sense of time, suddenly life is a little slow paced and way more relaxing.

Look out for me and my donkeys, and do not hoot when driving past me, them donkeys like to kick passing cars!

Thanks to Alex for taking this pic of me and my ride.

    Gregor, I love it! You have to take me for a ride some time, ok?!

    It's true though, you definitely see lots of donkeys around G'town. Waaaayyy back in first year, I was walking back from my graveyard shift at RMR at 6am; the streets were deserted, when suddenly a donkey just appeared out of nowhere! Gave me such a fright!

    (and that was my random story for the day!)

    Much love,
