Neil B.December 26, 2018 | 

On my way to Cape town: Long waiting at the border, it was not possible to turn my seat backwards nicely (probalbly broken). On my way back from Capetown to Windhoek: we were more than 4 hours too late, the aircon was not working and leaking so that a few guy were showered. The bus was leaving more than 2 hours too late without any informations and broke down at the border. Nobody was asking me about how my trip back was so I just write it down here. It was a terible terible journey. We even had old people in that bus who had to wait for hours at the border with no water and food. And had to sit in the terible heat for hours (because there was no aircon) There was also no toilet papaper.
