Day 8-Sunday 26 Feb - Blyde River Canyon

26/02/17 - Sophie and Daisy tell us about a day of sight seeing
The team at Blyde River Canyon
Lisbon Falls

Today, we visited a number of places. One of which was Lisbon Falls; a beautiful waterfall, another was Blyde River Canyon where we saw the 'Three Rondavels' and we also visited some market stalls where we bought a few souvenirs. A few of us attempted to haggle down the prices so we could get the items a bit cheaper, which worked for some but not for others. We did try to visit God’s Window, where we saw some monkeys, but the bad weather lead to poor visibility so we decided to go straight to Harrie’s Pancakes instead. The pancakes were amazing! They were huge and very filling! For some of us, it was the first time we had had savoury pancakes. As a group, we feel very lucky to be able to visit these amazing places as most of the people who live in these areas aren’t able to visit as they can’t afford it. We also feel that it was a nice break after a hard week in the communities.
