So After landing in Capetown and getting to my Hotel, i was very tired. I waited for my room then crashed for several hours, and just relaxed but then had a restless night. Of course my days and nights were messed up. So around 7 i got up and went up the restaurant and sat the bar there for something to eat and met several people.
Tuesday morning, i was up way to early but then I wondered down from the hotel a bit and took another easy day, i was going to take a tour that day but it was already booked so i booked it for the next day instead and ended up sleeping some the day anyway
Wednesday i made it on the Cape Point tour and met some more very nice people, that i would then end up hanging out with. I don't remember all the names right now will have to get the papers to get that info but it was a great day and we did some biking and hiking. Saw baboons and beautiful coast line. On the biking part we left from where we had lunch and biked 7km to the Cape of Good Hope.
Thursday i met up with one the guys here and we went up to the top of Table Mountain and walked around for a few hours. It has such a nice view of the city. After spending the afternoon at the hotel again I then met up with another bunch and about 9 of us then went up to the top to Table Mountain for the sun set and to see the city lights in the dark. That was the best. It was the perfect night, nice and warm and clear and not to much wind. Of all the days here it was the best day to do it. Then 4 of us went for dinner at the waterfront.
Friday (today) I booked on a wine tour. Ok sparkling wine at 9:30am isn't my bag. But we went to four different wineries and must have tried a good 40 different wines
Ok, this evening i met with my group that will be on the big tour with me and it looks like a great group. A bunch of us Canadians are on it. We are everywhere. Crossing my fingers for the 3 Ontario people that haven't got their luggage yet. (we leave in 11 hours) and the next place they can have it sent to is 5 days away at least.
I will go now as I'm tired and i have to get my bags ready to go. If i get a second wind i might get pics on yet. (i know I'm just teasing you about the pics.....)
