20 May Pretoria
Today is the last day of Xtractor’s thrilling South African adventure, and it comes to a close in perfect style – we arrive at the Italian Embassy in Pretoria accompanied by an impressive motorcade of South African police officers on motorbikes that make us feel like real stars! Thanks to their skill, we get there perfectly on time for the function kindly hosted by the Italian Ambassador, and without wreaking too much havoc on Pretoria. After nearly 8,000 km covered in 49 days, we can declare our mission accomplished! Then it’s back to Johannesburg, and we can’t deny being sad when the time comes to take our leave of our beloved red tractors – they will remain in South Africa, while we are flying back home to Italy tomorrow. We’ll miss you guys!
