In To Africa

Cape Town makes a lovely first impression. But you'll have to take my word for it. I haven't figured out how to post photos to my blog from here. Yet!

I'm staying in a cute bed and breakfast in the Waterkant Village high above the Victoria and Albert Waterfront. In one direction you can see the harbor and in the other Table Mountain.

Since my arrival everyone has made it very clear I need to be careful where I go after dark. Fortunately, the area around where I'm staying appears safe and entertaining.

Tomorrow I'm taking a City Tour. Probably going to the beach on Friday. I'm loving this summertime weather. Nice change from Europe.

Another nice change is the cost of things. The Dollar is still relatively strong compared to the Rand. I had a perfectly nice lunch (with two diet cokes) for around ten dollars today. In Europe I couldn't even get out of a Starbucks for that.
