July 7

According to my original plan I was going to spend this day in the capital of KwaZulu-Natal, Pietermaritzburg, but Heather, a guest with me at the Rosewood Corner in Clarens, suggested I visit Durban instead. ("Pietermaritzburg is boring.")

And much to my delight she said 'go to Durban and then stay the night at our place.' She didn't have to ask me twice!

Durban is most well known I think for three things. 1) is the largest population of people of Indian decent in South Africa, the most in any city outside India according to Heather's husband Martin.

It was a train ride from Durban to Pietermaritzburg that was one of the seminal moments in Gandhi's political life, when he was not allowed to travel on the first class ticket bought for him by his employer.
