   Guess who was a few hundred kilometres from
   Johannesberg, when RB was passing through?  You
   guessed it - 19 year old Nelson Mandela !

   I'm surprised that one of our early Prime Ministers
   was able to see exotic places, like the Nullabor Plain.

   Dear Dan,

   In 1936 RB was out to see the reality of the British
   Empire.  As for the Nullabor and the great railway,
   a decent history of Australia should give it to you,
   or better, Australian railways.  Still better, take the
   CPR from Calgary to Vancouver.  It was breathtaking
   in 1947 and still is, and far better than the Nullabor.
   The interior of Australia has to be seen to be

          Ever yours,
