... paused to let us back into the harbor (I think). Also, we saw a particular kind of bird which is the only one that will come down and take food from someone's hand, which it actually did from someone on our boat. So that was pretty cool.

... enough to see some tiny lizards who are only active in the morning and evenings; the Lesser Doublecollared Sunbird, and the cute little Rock Dassie. The Rock Dassie resembles a small rabbit and actually is closely related to the elephant (the evolutionary relationship is based on similarities in their feet and teeth).

... nope, only a new car.

  • Bathrooms are typically super clean. Many have bathroom attendants who will welcome you to “their office”. The only thing they don't have are paper towels and many don't have the hand dryers.
  • They use the metric system, so it takes a little time to convert temperature, distance, weight, and height.
  • The Rand (their currency) has been a breeze, approximately ...
