Great location - convenient to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, numerous restaurants, and site-seeing buses. Every room with a view of Table Mountain. I can't recall better service in any hotel.

This morning I woke up and had my first solo adventure in Cape Town. I went out and took a minibus just a little bit up the coast to Green Point where I went to mass.

I crawled out of bed again at 5:30am to do yoga by starlight and sunrise with one of the other travelers. This time was the best of all. I felt such a sense of peace and well-being that it brought me to tears. The previous evening, we sat for hours staring at the stars then playing with the camera doing some ‘light painting’.
More day-long driving across the desert to Sossusvlei, a ...
... in Africa stuff? I’m right here! No finding required. Did I learn some stuff? Sure. But if this is a mid-life crisis, I am in! Now for the sports car and tattoo. Seriously though, this has been a fantastic journey and I appreciate your company along the way. The blogs have been fun for both keeping in touch and keeping a personal memoir of my travels as Livingstone, Zambia, Victoria Falls and the African wedding seem so long ago!
Time for a nap…..
