Where the hell is Mpumulanga

Well here I am in Trichardt, Mpumulanga constructing a new Coal Mine for Sasol Secunda -this is the equivalent of being banished to the salt mines in Soviet Russia,
Accomodation is expensive and it is like being in the wild west - the town of Trichardt would have been quite nice in the 60's but it now consists of bottle stores, pubs and indian bubby shops!! The main street consists of 2nd hand Car Sales emporiums mostly owned by The Indian Mafia.
Strangely enough, I counted six Men's hairdressers (I am not too sure how that works)... still there is lots of open spaces and farms to ride MTB around and it is closer to the Blyde river Canyon, Kruger National Park, Sodwala Caves and all the game Lodges...
I will have to spend a lot more time on the bike here as The Virgin Active Gyms have cancelled my membership due to lack of attendance - albeit the nearest VA Gym is in Middleburg.
