Lachlan does the World’s highest bungy jump and Bow Wow joins a crew of salty surf mutts at J Bay which leads to a chance encounter with rock star scientist Brian Cox. We spend a few luxurious nights with Lucie’s relatives stocking up on biltong and gaining invaluable advice for the trip ahead. Humbled by the Wild Coast we can feel the bittersweet beauty of Africa’s extremes already getting under our skin and touching our hearts.
We step back in time to Wupperthal and design some shoes. Bow Wow makes a big impression with his ‘shake hands’ trick at the village school and we meet a German film crew. Mma Ramotswe would approve.
Getting to grips with Afrikaans, camping and constellations. We discover that Bow Wow is half otter in Beaverlac’s crystal pools and that you can take the dog out of the township but you can’t take the township out of the dog.
