    ... so knowledgable and helpful.

    Day 1 was a bit slow as we arrived at 3 in the morning (see the previous post) and slept in until almost 10. Lots of coffee for breakfast as well as a savoury stuffed crepe.

    ... this kind of stuff can happen but I've never actually witnessed it. It was a very scary moment for her and for all of us. The most fun thing was, well because it was our first day in Cape Town. I would have to say the entire day was a lot of fun. Being able to go to Table Mountain, checking out the neat beaded stuff at Street Wires, going to the market, exploring the city, etc. The least fun thing ...

    ... une terrasse ensoleillée pour manger. Puis, on va magasiner. Après, direction le V&A Waterfront pour un avant-goût de Cape Town.

    Mais la fatigue se fait sentir, et demain, on a un programme chargé. On rentre et on commande une pizza pour les enfants. Puis dodo!
