Back to Africa Pt 8: The final [OUT] post
After an intense four days in Jozi catching up with family and friends plus business meetings I took a few hours off to visit Chilli Vinyl (pictured above). Steve runs the business from rooms behind a horse-shoe shop! There was a nice rack of South African material and I picked up some original 60s folk (Des Lindberg, Mel and Mel, Des and Dawn), psychedelia (Hawk) plus a few other bits and pieces. Well worth visiting. Then it was off to the airport and I was hit for being overweight (thats vinyl for you). Finally I got to my parents spot around eight and spent an emotional couple of days packing up the house and coming to terms with my Dad's Altzeimers...he's in a world of his own. On Friday I journeyed up to Durban and saw more friends and family and made a lightening visit to 3rd Ear Music to meet with David Marks (pictured below).
Finally back (home) this morning to a white welcome. Its been a long but rewarding journey.
