80 Days Around the World in Durban

The heroes have set off from London Plumbers negotiating the downhill ride from the Heights of the Kloof down the Gorge to have to cross the river…

 

-Crossing this water?

-Yeah, the sister of the mighty Umgeni

-With this? (Pointing to their shopping-trolley)

-With this.

-Are there… fish in the water?

-Ya…big fish

-I always wanted to ask- do fish sweat?

 

(Bitumen, asphalt from the road-works nearby mixed with paper, create a base so that their Pick and Pay trolley turns into a floater)

 

-Now who gets in?

- I get in…

- Why you?

- Because I am the Master

- No Ladies first? No big warrior protecting a vulnerable woman?

- I can’t swim

-What makes you think I can?

-You were speaking of the Great Lake by your village and how you swam faster than the boys in contests…

- Alright I can swim…

 

Precariously…he balances inside the trolley- re-covered by the off-cuts and paraphernalia they were carrying…She can’t push the trolley/boat off-shore. It is too heavy and its wheels sink in mud…He has to get out…They manage to float it…but he can’t get in without capsizing it…It drifts downstream…They chase to no avail…It takes a bend and disappears…They wade and when it gets deeper he holds onto her back…She prefers that he gets into a piggy-back arrangement…She hardly balances and starts to walk…ready to swim…It is shallow…She walks him across as he refuses to get off her back…
