Weather update for 22 January 2006…onsite Rorke's Drift and Isandlwana

This morning sunrise temp 18 hum 78 clear no wind..the odd cloud
Mid day Isandlwana (onsite) hot 34 hum 80 slight breeze from the North East

To stand there at noon and reflect on the events of 127 years ago was somewhat emotional and a moment of silence seemed appropriate. Never mind how many times I have visited the "wagon station" I always get caught up in that eerie feeling that it must have been horrific. Its significance is demonstrated by the thousands of people who come here every year from all over the world.

May their souls rest in everlasting peace
