Guess where I am? Nope. I am blogging from ORTIA. Just flew in from Phalaborwa where I closed out the SEACAT 2.3 study at Lulekani. On the plane I started chatting to my neighbour (which is so totally out of character) without realising that it was Deon Maas (Afrikaans Idols' rude judge). He is quite an interesting conversationalist and even hit me in the stomach once!? We discussed raciscism in Europe, old Universities (did you know there has been an Islamic university in Nigeria since 980 AD?), Idols, Deon's current audio and television productions and Joan Hambidge. Time just flew by. Also, Deon gets quite anxious during landing... now there is some dirt for you.
