This chapter details the events following the author's arrival in Cape Town, South Africa, on 24 June 1947. After a month in Cape Town, with dwindling funds, he decided to travel around the country and see if there were any good prospects of settling as a physician in another city, later deciding to settle in Port Elizabeth, 400 miles to the east of Cape Town. The author spent two weeks on the farm, Kaalplaats (Dry Place) with Meneer and Mevrou Botha, in order to learn more about the way the Afrikaners lived on their farms, and in January 1948, his wife Nonie and young son John joined him in Port Elizabeth.
