80 Days Around the World in Durban

Author: 
Ari Sitas
Body: 

The finishing line with all and sundry- with Auda Fogg with flowers and Solly with envelopes- there is a brass band fighting against Vuvuzelas- there are banners- welcome to London…London Plumbers the guaranteed Royal Service and Capacity-Building Providers…The favourite one is in the rickshaw…Ezekiel is walking holding the axle of the wheel as a wheel substitute…Precious Ntshangase is carting the loads. There is a film-crew on a bakkie and cops on motorbikes with blue lights…And they make it…80 days plus two hours of spare as change.

 

We made it…

On wheels

On shoes

On pap

You…

The Woman nods quizzically

You make me happy

 

(Precious translates in sign-language)

 

She points to him- You- continues to make ornate hand and arm-long signals

 

(Precious is puzzled cannot decipher it…Indicates- what?)

 (Re-indicates briefly)

 

Ah…I see…It is Poetry…She is doing Poetry with her hands

That’s beautiful…Imitates gestures

That’s beautiful…

80 Days around the world to find this girl

I would do it allover again without wagering…just to find you

She smiles…She continues doing poetry…

Precious is riding around on roller-blades…
