The French writer Jules Verne had his character Phileas Fogg circumnavigate the world in 80 days on a 20 000 pound wager. That was in late nineteenth century circumstances, when the classic adventure novel was published.
Club members Mike and Helen MacNaught probably faced fewer obstacles on their more recent trip around the Cape in 38 days. But then they did it at their leisure, for their pleasure – and for the birding.
They will show and tell all at the Club monthly meeting in the Fernkloof Nature Reserve Hall on Wednesday 16 September. Please note that the starting time will be 19:00, as we have switched back to summer time.
Visitors are welcome. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available in the kitchen afterwards.
