      I'm in Cape Town! We arrived here on the night of the 25th after flying from Livingstone at the end of our safari. Cape Town is a fairly large city and is downright massive after being in the bush if Botswana for ten days. Let's catch up on what's been going on...

Before getting out of bed Erika and I ...

After a two hour drive, (through wine country, you would think they would stop and let us have a nerve calming tasting or 17) and Therese finally realizing they drive on the other ...

      ... tomatoes and chilli. Very nice it was too. It was served in a transparent bag. Like a present. Very posh! Table mountain was closed today because of high wind and poor visibility.
