Nestling on the shores of the Indian Ocean, Durban is the holiday place of choice for probably more South Africans than anywhere else. It’s subtropical climate and warm waters almost guaranteeing a holiday free from the vagaries of the weather.
Durban is a relatively short 4 hour drive from Johannesburg with multi-lane highways and dual carriageways the whole way, making it relatively close and convenient.
Which suits me, I find the annual migration of holidaymakers to my small part of the world an absolute nuisance, Durban can have them. but I digress, Durban is the venue for this year’s Climate Change Christmas Party and would you believe no fewer then 15,000
partygoers ‘delegates’ are expected!
To be honest, I didn’t think that Durban had sufficient 5 star hotels or stretch limousines to accommodate them all, perhaps some are slumming it in the game / safari parks not too far away.
Here’s a few statistics kindly provided by my weekend read…
I bet that you’re all delighted that I didn’t stick that pic on the front page 😉
Fortunately I’m far enough away from the whole shebang to be able to continue life as normal. I’ll keep members posted on this weeks scientific breakthroughs and announcements.
