Things we take for granted

Many of us who have the privilege of flying often have forgotten what it was like that first time!! We had butterflies, we thought the aeroplane was about to drop into the ocean and worst still when it came into land, we thought that we go crashing onto the tar – this was a very real experience for me yesterday as I accompanied Bertha Sehlabo from Tiping Organisation in Matatiele (her 1st flight) and Thandokazi Ndabane from Queenstown (her 2nd flight) on a flight to Cape Town. We landed back in PE at around 17h10 and Bertha boarded a bus back to her village at 19h00 – a trip that would take about 10 hours. I guess next time Bertha will tell us that she wants to fly to PE and not come by bus any longer as it takes too long!!
