The highest peak in England is Scafell Pike at 3,209 feet above sea level. What's that to do with us being out of breath in Johannesburg? Well I've just discovered that walking around the streets here, we are 5,750 above sea level. No wonder the hill climbing is difficult!
Every day just now it's torrential rain, still above 22C most days and still in t-shirts, but when it rains here, it goes on and on. Not much thunder and lightening, like in the summer, just constant heavy rain. All the water here comes from bore holes and is reckoned to be the cleanest in the world. The swimming pool, usually in need of a top up, is now nearly to the top! Looks like we are heading into South African Autumn!
This is how it goes...
