First day in NWU

A bright evening welcomed us in Mafeking after our 6 hour journey from Jo'burg. Hotel Mmabatho Palms, which is supposed to be our residence for the next 30 days seem to be quite nice. Prof. Modese Maaga, who is a retired Professor from the North Western University and also associated with DoT, would be our guide in our mission.
