          Our house mother, Mavis, at Green Elephants was an absolute diamond. She really looked after us and made us very welcome.

          ... Dion and many other celebs frequent. It was beautiful! For the evening we ventured just down the street to a pub called Ferrymans. It was definitely the place to be with live music and a great crowd. It was their 25th anniversary so they had a special menu where everything was just $25 rand ($2.5 Canadian!). The calamari and chips we shared were so good!!! I still can't believe they were only $2.5!! We also ...

Cape Town (Kaapstad) was established by the Dutch in the 1600’s as a supply station to provide the ships of the United East Indie Company (Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie or V.O.C.) with provisions. They established a fort which was built in the same shape as the traditional Dutch Bulwark (Vesting)Towns – Star shaped.

          Left Springbok and drove south. Quite a long day's journey, so we started by going into the Goegab National Park. Not sure why, other than they guys at Annies Cottage recommended it. Just to add on to the mileage. And it cost a whole R30 entrance for the 2 of us. But it was well worth it. Flowers everywhere. here's a dirt road which gives a circular route through about 1/10th of the park, so ...

          ... we ate dinner at a nearby restaurant that happened to have a fun live band. We planned to look for a hostel when we were finished. Once we started searching for a hostel however, we quickly discovered they were few and far between. Our luck finally ran out. We looked and inquired everywhere for a place to stay that was inexpensive and could accommodate all of us. Stan wanted to sleep on the beach and Irene eventually said she'd sleep in the car even though it was ...

          We actually arrived in Cape Town on the afternoon of Monday, April 1. We had flown for about 16 hours altogether from New York, through Jo'burg and on to Cape Town, with another 3 to 4 hours checking in, doing security and waiting to fly. We had yelling children for about 12 of those hours, so we were pretty tired when we got in. After checking in to the hotel, we wandered around downtown for a little while in the rain, then had dinner and went to bed.
