We are in Cape Town, South Africa! It's about 85°; sunny and warm. We landed earlier today, checked into the gorgeous guest house we're staying in and had a delicious [yet eyes way too big for our stomachs] dinner at a restaurant just a short walk from our place. We're now relaxing after about 27 hours of traveling (door to door).
We're pretty excited to be here where it doesn't really feel like "Africa". We'll get plenty of that later on our other stops...
The exchange from US dollars to South African rand is EXCELLENT right now. South Africa is something like #2 in the top 10 list of places where the dollar is strong. So at the nice place we dined tonight - no entrée was over $10. We had a TON of food - 2 appetizers and 2 entrées for $25!!
Oh and the best part and perhaps the thing I always hate most about traveling internationally?
