Maluti mountains

Lesotho

all seasons in one day 3 °C

This was my first travelling trip out of South africa (not necessary since its in the same country, maybe I should say it was my first trip to use a passport). We travelled by bus from Johannesburg to Lesotho, we left Johannesburg Friday afternoon and arrived in lesotho in the middle of the night. Upon crossing the border everything changed. All of a sudden I realised that I was away from home. I couldn't understand the language spoken, I saw people covered in beautiful designed blankets.Everything looked and sounded odd for me but I loved it, the people were warm and welcoming. It was a pleasent trip, on arrival we stayed at a B&B at the bottom of the Maluti mountains, it was winter time. I had packed enough cloths for a weekend away. I ended up wearing all my cloths in one day since it was very very very cold. I then understood why people in Lesotho cover themselves with blankes, If I had one of those I would have used it. We went mountain climbing on the Sunday morning. It was fun and as we climbed the mountain we started gettinging warmer. It took us Almost 3 hrs to reach the peak. The scenary on top of the mountain was beautiful. We left Maluti Sunday afteroon and we arrived back in Johannesburgh in the evening, hhmmm jo'burg was warm...home sweet home!!
