... manager, Earl, and the breakfast lady, Jean, were very friendly and helpful. Earl happily helped us to plan our three days in Cape Town.

Day 1

Every morning, Earl called to find out if the cable car was running up to the top of Table Mountain and every day he found out that it was too windy to run. Also the clouds on the mountain, the tablecloth, would be too thick to afford views. So sadly we were not able to go to the top of the mountain. But... ...

Cathy suddenly noticed a sign in the undergrowth - a graphic of a cobra and a skull and cross bones. We took the hint and didn't hang around….

... Two points to note. How many of the Aurora passengers are likely to wish to remain illegally in Namibia and how experienced are the Namibians in crewing tenders? It is said that the Captain has refused to entertain either situation. So at the moment we appear to have a stand off. In my view we should simply cancel all tours and continue sailing past Namibia. I would imagine that their tourist industry would want our cash more than we want to see Namibia. So, will we go in or won't ...
