    ... waiter threw a knife and nicked one of them. Blood was spewing and the gang rushed away. About an hour later many, many more baboons came and succeeded in completely trashing the restaurant. It had to close. Note to self- don’t mess with a baboon.

    We then traveled through Chapman’s peak. There were spectacular views on the way to the Cape of Good Hope Nature preserve. Here we saw more baboons, ...

    ... had to bring their carryon bags to them to be inspected. They didn’t care how much you were carrying they checked for liquids. There had been a new security threat coming from Johannesburg, London and a few other cities so they were being extra careful.

    First hostel is decent. We found our feet and then somehow turned a 20 minute stroll to get some lunch into a 4 hour trek to the V&A Waterfront, risking blisters and sunburn on day 1!!

After a very early night we were up at 5.00 (need to get back to work for a lie in!!!) to ...
