... 2 hours all in all and it was good to finally see the route we had driven last Sunday night by day. We passed Shack towns, the airport, the actual ships used in the Pirates of the caribbean movies (that are now just dis-used and quite an impressive sight as there are 5 of them all lined up next to each other) and then arrived in Cape Town.

I suppose there's a certain catharsis to the experience, but I still kept thinking that it must have been deeply painful to talk about their incarceration day in and day out.

... as the Bishop chatted about Canada and it's support and support of the citizens in the fight against apartheid. We asked for a photo of him and he declined and instead suggested a group photo, with him, at the entrance of the cathedral. What more needs saying? A fabulous photo was taken and we thanked him and he blessed us. Wow! Hard to beat that! We continued to through the park and into the museum where Beverley gave us a ...
