Finally, after a short drive today and a circa 18000 mile total trip, we arrive in Cape Town. Well, the Surf arrives in Cape Town but we get a text from Pete saying that the other 2 cars are on their way and still plan to arrive today: fingers crossed they succeed. We still have no idea whether they have managed to fix the cracked head in the Rangie or if she is on tow!
We stay at a B&B belonging to Farni and Erena who we met in Malawi: a beautiful spot called Be My Guest, situated just north of the main city and in area with a great view of Table Mountain.
The Springboks are playing Australia today in the tri-nations cup and so, after a tour of the castle in the centre of town, we head to a pub on the Waterfront to watch the match: disappointing as the Boks loose but fun nevertheless. Strange indeed though to be doing such a “normal” thing after months on the road: this is definitely a different Africa from the one we have driven through.
