Quote of the Day

So at last they were on the road, six people and two dogs and a lot of luggage being quite a load for the new car which, however, seemed to take it in its stride. They left Cape Town and went across a wide plain, where bright autumn leaves still clung to the vines, towards a great range of mountains. They could see the road, going up across the face of the mountains like a scar; but what the Eliots couldn't make out was where it went - it just suddenly seemed to disappear.

From VENTURE TO SOUTH AFRICA, Chapter 5, The Journey Ends.
