That sounded great to me, though I was hoping to see the beaches there. Capetown has some incredible scenery, and the utmost diversity in all aspects. However, it was very first world and not the Afrika I wanted to get into.
The winery was beautiful. I refrained from tasting, though it was a steal at $3 for all the tasting you wanted. We walked the vineyards, harvesting nasturtium, acorns, a puffball and a few sprigs of rosemary. We had a picnic dinner and great conversation at sunset. Then we went to pick up Mycol, back at the airport.
He was on time, I changed some money, and we were off to Namibia. A good, old-fashioned American road trip... in Afrika!!
We've rented a very new and nice Kia van (same as a VW vanagon). It's a manual diesel, and we're all learning well to drive on the left side of the road.
