Tuesday morning I got a taste of Atlanta traffic (much worse than St. Louis) on the way to the airport. I am so greatful to Chad for the ride and stay. A taxi would have been in excess of $60 easily.
My South African Airways flight to Johannesburg had a refueling stop in the Cape Verde Islands. I'd have liked to see what they look like, but it was dark. The flight was very smooth and on time. I'd even call it entertaining. I played a lot of chess against a computer (eventually winning every time) and watched two great movies. One, called "From Nkoko with Love," was a documentary on a grandmother trying to instill traditional ways in her granddaughter and community before she passes. It was very well done and set up the trip nicely.
In Jo'burg, I had a little trouble changing planes, but they put me on the next flight to Cape Town, just 1.5 hours later than my original.
