By now, our daily routines have become rather standardized. Before dark, we search a good spot for camping, and make a small fire to cook food.


In a coming book called South African Field Cooking, I will describe the results that emerge. I’m sure Allan, Willem, and Jeroen have a plan during cooking, despite the fact that my still-untrained eye perceives the process like random mixing of ingredients that happen to be found in the cooler box.


After dinner we got to bed before nine and get up at sunrise. The fire is revived for making coffee. The fire pit can also be used for warming up cold feet, as demonstrated by Jeroen below.


After breakfast we pack everything in the car and head towards the closest Lithops population!
