Saturday night, July 19th, Kylemore B, Cape Town, South Africa


If the weather had cooperated, we would have joined our good friends, Anne and Margaret, on the high seas to Robben Island.  It's where Nelson Mandela spent most of his time in prison.  But it didn't, and we still met for lunch (they treated) to say good-bye, and promise to meet again soon.  We'll miss them and Albert, and have re-doubled our commitment to visit Australia soon.

In the afternoon, we took a taxi to the National History Museum near a large park in the city center.  We were impressed with their sections on  early earth history.  South Africa's birth within the split-up of the super-continent (Godwana) was well-displayed, and we could better understand what we have been seeing over the past three weeks as a result.

At 6pm, we met up with the other members of our new tour, and our guide (Kembo) to go over the itinerary for the next 21 days.  They are Canadians and Australians, and once again are seasoned travelers.  We're on our own tomorrow, and will join up with them on Monday morning.

Finally caught up with you after our own travels (Idaho). And once again jelousy reigns. After seeing you Google map I'm envious as hell. Waiting to hear about Namibia. Here's to more "Happy Trails."
