After Namibia we came back to Capetown where we would receive, Viveka, one Margii from the US who came for a conference in Durban. He came a week early as to see Ananda Marga in South Africa and meet the members in various towns.
In Capetown we, I should have told that the "we" I have been speaking of is Dada Madhududana and myself. He was actaully posted to Romania but there were lots of obstacles to overcome before he could actually get there (and many more on arrival!) He finally made it after our travels with Viveka, late August or early September.
Ok in Capetown we also met up with Ann one lady who worked for several years from our Jagrtii in Auckland (New Zealand) doing Hoemeopaty and flower essences therapies. She is a beautiful spiritual person, always working to help others. Now she came to visit friends in SA and somehow located me.
We all went to the botanical gardens and the next day we climbed up Table Mountain. A much steeper climb than anything we do on my Himalayan trek! Both Ann and Vivek came along very nicely, as well or better than me though 20-30 years older! The other Dada grew up in Capetown and climbed up once a week so we had to seriously reign him in otherwise we would lose our gide in minutes:-)
