KwaZulu-Natal calls

Kevin is now in Amsterdam, and leaves for Luneberg on the border of KwaZulu-Natal tomorrow, day 10. Two provinces down, 3 more to go. Amsterdam was established in 1866, and was called Roburnia, after Robert Burns, the Scottish poet, according to Wikipedia. But that wily old Boer, president Paul Kruger, ordered that the name be changed to Amsterdam in 1882. But Burns has had his way in Amsterdam, after all – Kevin is staying in the Robert Burns Inn, where he has found welcome hospitality, a hearty meal and comfortable bed in the town.
