London flight prices
Hopefully we'll be back to exploring London's magical streets soon! South Africa is currently on the UK's Red List, which means only British nationals are allowed to travel from South Africa to the UK and then they have to complete 10 days quarantine in a hotel. There are no direct flights connecting South Africa to the UK currently.

The Purple shall rule! Platothefish decided to drive from East London to Cape Town:

- "A phenomenon known as rural roadification is occurring across Africa . Where villages used to spring up along rivers or close to water, they are now almost all being built along main roads. This is a result of the fact that these days people need money in order to eat and live. As you can't hunt, catch or grow money, you have to exchange your labour for it. To do this you have to get to somewhere where the more affluent (economically) people are, those who have enough spare folding stuff that they want to use the only thing you have to sell - your time and effort.  The people with the money don't want to live around the people without the money, the people without the money have to live where they can find a place that they can get to the people with the money."

- "We pass through Kinklebos, where they train the traffic police and guess what, a police road check. Luckily it's on the other side of the road today. For a place that is the centre for road traffic police, no petrol station."

- "South African N roads have a runoff strip in the left a bit like the emergency lane on the UK motorways.  Slower vehicles often move over into this runoff to let faster cars pass.The delineation between this and the carriageway is a continuous yellow line and if you are lucky orange cats eyes. Obviously only those lucky enough to have headlights powerful enough to reflect back at you are able to see these. Lulu can just about manage one or maybe two cats eyes dimly lit in front  of her, as long as they are closely spaced. This is fine on the open road. When the N2 goes through townships most of the cats eyes decorate the exterior walls of the nearby hand made houses."

The Bottom Line: "Following the announcement on 5th Nov 2012 of the completed FastJet branding and the launch of FastJet operations in Tanzania with three A319 aircraft, the Company is now progressing with establishing the second hub location for FastJet in the continuing plan to build the FastJet network into the Low Cost Carrier for all of Africa. These additional funds will be deployed in assessing an earlier than expect opportunity open to FastJet to interact with the Southern African market place and progressing with the opening of further operational hubs for the FastJet network across Africa." said the Executie Chairman of Fastjet

Fastjet plans on launching operations on the 29th Nov 2012, with flights from Dar es Salaam to Mwanza & Dar es Salaam to Kilimanjaro.
