... certainly been some of the more risky things I've done on the trip so far.

I got back from surfing around 3:45 because we had such good luck with seeing the sharks, so the trip didn't take as long as it might have. Was pretty hungry - they provide sandwiches and snacks on the boat but I dived in the last group and so most of the food was gone by the time I got out of the water. My friend and I ended up at a Spanish tapas restaurant in Kalk Bay, ...

... stuck in the cage for about 2-3 seconds, but it wasn’t when we were in the cage unfortunately. This tour was well worth the money. IT WAS SO COOL!!!! There is very little we know about great white sharks and although we don’t know how many there are in the world today they are considered to be endangered.

Ilangwa and I had a nice chat on the phone, and in the two years since, we have spoken on Facebook. In fact, he has seen this girl around ...

... Whilst the afternoon was pleasant, generally the wines were not. I think Australian wines are much better (particularly, the wines from Mt Barker - keep up the good work Alex!).

We also enjoyed a full day discovering the Cape Peninsula. This breathtaking drive took us along some very picturesque coastline. Taking in some sights like Chapman's Peak Drive, the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Point where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet ...

Even though I was only in Cape Town for 2 days, I was able to pack a lot in and spend some good time with my old time buddy Zack Zimbalist who is doing research here this summer for his PhD in African Studies. The weather was also on my side and it cleared up just as I arrived. I was able to get to out to Cape Point, taste wines in Stellenbosch, hike Lionshead Mountain and tour Robben Island. Compared to everywhere I had been ...
