Day nine - Pietermaritzburg,
11th October 2007

Today I drove up to Estcourt to meet up with Ann and Mike Curry-Hyde of Eskort Printers. Mike's web site can be seen at this link.

Mike has a small print shop next`door to Standard Bank and is my main distributor of "Children of the Mist" in S Africa. We sorted out logistics and paper work before I set off back to Pietermaritzburg.

The afternoon was spent in Pietermaritzburg visiting the location of the Museum where the local numismatic society met in the 1970s and still meets today.

Had dinner with Moira and Eddie before retiring to bed early - long day tomorrow in Kokstad!
