Karoo - Day1 Leg21 - Surprise!

We then happened upon a do it yourself shop literally in the middle of nowhere, made out of the local bush called "muisbos". Nobody serving, just a trust system, where you see the price on the menu and leave the correct amount of money. They offered beer, cokes, food stuffs, even charcoal and wood for a bbq/braai! I loved the fact that you were also asked for a tip for the waitress - but the waitress was non-existent! You just leave the money in the jar for what you take and then continue your journey. How cool is that?

This is the daily blog from A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011.
More South and Southern African motor cycle tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.

On the side of the road, this little shop made of bush

Even tells you how much to tip the waitress on the menu

An assortment of goodies to buy - Rich headed directly for the beer

What else have they got?

View out the shop

This is the whole structure, with a quote outside from the bible about what happens to you if you steal

This sign outside says Stop, help yourself, something for the empty tummy, something for the thirst, something to take along and karoo love for the soul, travel safely further - Santa

Getting ready to roll

Have a BBQ if you'd like one
