KV21-800x533It is also the city of breath taking murals painted onto the sides of township building walls. We took a walk around trying to find them all.

We heard from our friend Ken today who is a day ahead of us and took a route advised to be more beautiful than the one we are planning to take. He saw his first bear and decided to keep pedalling for a further 50 kms. Total distance covered by Ken today, 122kms! We have changed our plan and not follow, sticking with our original route.

No reason!!!!!!
