Joe phoned Barry Blair (old friend from Rhodes University and Rhodesia) and got directions to his home. Of course, we missed a turn on the busy confusing highways but Kevin used his GPS and rescued us. Barry welcomed us and served tea before Hilary arrived home from teaching her Pilates class and reminded him of the milk tart (melktert), so we each had a slice of the wonderful pudding. Joe and Jan wanted to visit with their long-time friends and the kids were eager to move around so Barry and Joe took them to nearby MonteCasino where they toured the Bird Sanctuary and shops. Jan stayed to visit with Hilary and then we made plans to have dinner at our airport hotel that night. J&J then met the kids at Monte- Casino. Before entering, we had to pass through a security check, opening our bags and being frisked—they were looking for handguns. We sat with the kids while they had an Italian dinner and heard tales of the birds attacking them in the aviary. They laughed so hard telling us about their experience there.
