Dawn over the Buffalo River on our last morning here at Rorkes Drift. Does the shape remind you of anything?
On our way to Cathedral Peak, we stopped off at another battlefield, this time from the Boer War, the Spioenkop Battlefield, where it seems that tactics went awry and many young men, many of them teenagers, were killed right there in the shallow trenches that they were able to dig and they lie where they fell. The futility of war again touched our hearts.
