    ... places in the world where you have a 98% chance! The other place is OZ. Not bad odds hey ;-) Sharks live up to 80 yrs of age all the ones we saw today have been tagged at some point in the past so that they can be tracked and protected. Dan loved it even though the water was super cold as its winter the visibility of the water was brilliant at 2.5 - 3 mtrs , we had a few head on close up experiences, truly an opportunity of a life time. ...

    ... the cage, if you puke, puke on the side of the boat the cage is not on, all important things. So out we head there had been big storms for the last 3 days so the water was quite choppy we jetted out for about 30 minutes to the back of an island where we dropped anchor and they began to chum, so chumming for those who don't know is a mix of fish oil, fish blood and cut up fish, basically the worst smell in the world when you are feeling slightly queasy ...

    ... the Republic of Swellendam. Disgruntled farmers took issue with Dutch East India Company rule in the late 1700s, perceiving it as incompetent and disconnected from the realities of their life far from the coast. So they declared independence in 1795, and did just fine until the British showed up and took over the whole Cape region a few months later.
