It's 10:56am and we're sitting in Cape Town International Airport waiting for our flight. no delays so far - but we're early. that's what happens when you arrive 2 hours early for your international flight and then realize the first flight on your itinerary is domestic... they should really do a bit more for domestic travelers. in a word the domestic terminal can be described as: meh.
aside: i saw a super slick BMW on the way up Table Mountain - al shiny and black - license plate: MEH
soooo... our SA adventure is coming to an end. at 12:20 we board for Jo'burg and then it's off to Hong Kong! this time 'round we should be able to enjoy the Hong Kong experience a bit more - seeing s how we have a 9 hour stop-over before we fly to Kaohsiung.
i had 8 hours in Zurich once: walked a lot and took some snaps of a chapel's stained glasswork - by Chagal nogal.
it still feels surreal when i think that we've been here for 15 days already. there's never enough time when you're having fun. but i prefer having had too little time rather than too much. it's positively ghastly when you have too much time on holiday...
we did manage to do a whole lot with our time, though.
our first day was spent in Johannesburg, where we got to have fun with Karl at Gold Reef City (did the tour and everything). we also got to have dinner with Jonathan, his bo Jon as well as Clive and FJ! i was also blessed to have my dear friend Keri (from my days at Tukkies) join us for drinks. (non-alcoholic ones for me, of course.)
busy first day: check!
the following morning Karl whisked us back to the airport - next stop: George!
some pics of Gold Reef City:
time for a break.
more to come ;0)
