Day seven - Durban,
9th October 2007

Today I went and explored the Berea are of Durban - the Musgrave Road shopping centre where Adams Books is based and, of course the Campbell Collections.

I also had time to meet with Peter Adams, the owner of Adams Books before the Killie Campbell launch.

It rained in Durban today - solidly - although they need the rain the shower was a dampener on the launch with about 20 people turning up instead of the expected 40-50.

The launch started at 5.30pm and went very well with a lot of questions being asked after I had finished talking. Anthony Govender a well known numismatist from Durban attended the event.

Tomorrow I travel to Pietermaritzburg for the first leg of my trip down to Cape Town.
