After three very long days of travel, we have finally made it to our final destination, Cape Town, South Africa. We have been fortunate that everything has been effortless (except trying to find our way out of the Zurich airport). It is rainy and overcast today, so Table Mountain didn't greet us on our drive in from the airport. I can already tell that this city is full of a mixture of very interesting people and cultures. Our hotel is quaint, very much like an old guest house, but it's right off a trendy, bustling street. Annie's high school friend Stephen will be meeting us in about 3 hours for dinner. I think that will make for a nice introduction into the city.
Our taxi driver told us that Parliment started today (although CT is not the capital of SA, it is where Parliment is located) and the new president, Jacob Zuma, is in town. Let's hope there is no unrest!
We also saw a few of the townships. A township tour is on the itenerary for tomorrow.
HIGHLIGHT: I quietly watched the sun rise over Africa (Angola, I think) from my plane window this morning. Beautiful...
