We've sorted of had to admit that Mitchell's Plain is bigger than Pietermaritzburg! We find ourselves going around shopping centres saying 'oh wow, look what you can get here'. And there is more than one mall. The roads are big and wide. The only things we lack are Incredible Connection, (which we found that nearby in Somerset Mall as well as Dion Wired which we hadn't seen before) and we haven't found a good bookshop in Mitchell's Plain itself.
But then, of course, the beach is ten minutes away!
God is good.
