Day 158

After a few conversations with Derryn Cambell of Awesome SA, Rog met with her at Angelos Trattoria in Umhlanga to discuss the workings and production of The EXPEDITION Project’s annual photographic journals and story books. Collaboration is in the air again. Rog had his first haircut courtesy of Fresh Hair, Umhlanga. Feeling sharp again!

Day 160

Our meeting with Quiksilver was postponed until next week as so this gave us time to hear more about the new eThekwini campaign for Durban which entails turning the city into ‘Africa’s most caring and liveable city’ – look forward to following the progress of that. Quick lunch at Wodka @ The Docklands Hotel – thanks to Rath and the team.

A weekend full of computer work based at Sica’s Guest House, in fact so much work that for Saturday and Sunday Rog didn’t leave his room.
