Surreal Port Elizabeth

Getting to Port Elizabeth from Knysna was a bit of a surreal experience. We were running late thanks to the car trouble we had earlier in the day so we drove as the sun was setting. The road was barren, there wasn't anything around, just fields and mountains as far as the eye could see. After three hours of nothing and an impressive wind farm, we hit the main freeways. It was a chaotic mess of roads circling into and over one another and then our turn off appears.  The road was fairly rickety and dangerous looking, suspended high into the air and then makes a sharp turn into Port Elizabeth. It was quite late so we decided to find our place and get some rest.
The next morning we had a bit of a wander around town. The town was cool, there were surrealist sculptures and art pieces and also some really nice architecture. All in all, it seemed like a really interesting place. But we didn't have much time, so we headed out to our next stop, East London.
