... felt more confident and went to bed. My Lino ripped immediately and suddenly the thick mist and dew returned.


It was almost as wet as the first night, but despite the rip I remained mostly dry with the occasional water bath when I turned over. Dad on the other hand was strangely subdued.

I decided to take Route 62 to Cape Town and stay over at the "Warmwaterberg Spa" on a friend's recommendation. I have not slept in a caravan in 20 years.

We continued along the gravel road to the river, where we undertook a very hot and gruelling walk through scrub at the riverside. Absolutely no birds on ...

... are no road signs anywhere in this city. But the V&A Waterfront was bustling with activity and a rooftop of one of the harbour buildings was covered with hundreds of roosting terns. We had a good meal at a "traditional African" restaurant. Robbie was happy because they had a vegetarian menu. Now we sit in the hotel bar once more awaiting our bags... It's 11.45pm. How long do we stay up in hope? I'm very tired. Even later. Hurrah! The bags arrived at midnight on the dot, just as I ...
