Weeks of preparation, lots of paperwork and forms, a stressful visit to London to lodge our visa application. Today our passports are on their way back from the South African consulate – no idea whether our visas have been granted though. It doesn’t know whether to snow or rain in Oxford today. Very nervous waiting!
Dawn arrival at O. R. Tambo airport – long drive to our downtown hotel. Maboneng district is a funky place. Straight to the Domincan Convent School to meet the headmaster. At the weekend, brunch at the Neighbourgoods Market, then festival time at the Dominican School in the afternoon.
