    Day 2 in Cape Town saw the weather take a turn for the worst. We got up early to take a ferry out to Robben Island only to find that no ships were going out in the weather. So we decided to jump back in the hop in/ off bus, taking a new route around the city. We stopped into the District 6 museum and learned about the neighborhood that was …

    ... in 2007, but I don't think I really grasped how powerful waves can be because the water was pretty calm compared to this, which still wasn't that bad. We did a 1/2 day lesson through the Stoked School of Surf on Muizenberg beach which is surfer central. I never got to a point where I could stand, but I got on my knees pretty solidly at the end. At one point we were on the shore getting instruction on how to stand when this very loud siren went off across the beach ...

    ... the best bite of the night and certainly a contender for the best bite of the trip. Fourth course was Kingklip, a local whitefish (the one like but not actually from the aquarium) which was good but not the best bite of the night. Then came the waygu beef course. Now you probably know waygu by its more commercial name, kobe. Kobe beef comes from the island of Kobe in Japan but from waygu cows. The beef we ate tonight was from Australia so ...

    ... to hold no life whatsoever. Another half hour or so we arrived at the Addo Elepant Park main rest camp. The reception was extremely busy - I think all the guests today had all arrived at once. We're in a "Forest Cabin" - it's quite adequate, a single roomed log hut with 4 single beds, bathroom and thank god a proper air conditioning unit, not just a fan. The temperature here is absolutely shocking after the two dull days we've had in Wilderness. We have to use a communal kitchen but ...
