... with small diversion to Cape Agulhas, the most southerly point of Africa, and a final run into Capetown.
I had been told that Capetown was a beautiful city but was mis informed, it is spectacularly gorgeous! The most amazing part is the fluffy white cloud that streams in across the top of the mountain and rolls in a continuous moving river over the lip and down the side like a constantly unfolding vaporous tablecloth.
