Today was a rough start to my spring break week in Cape Town. I got all the way to the airport when I realized I forgot my driver’s license (which I needed to rent a car). I had enough time, though, to go home and back to the airport in time for boarding. The taxi driver called me 3 times (is reasonable I suppose but ouch). And of course (Murphy’s Law), the flight was delayed 2 hours. I arrived in Cape Town to find my car reservation was “lost” and that I forgot my Kindle and cell phone charger (maybe God is trying to tell me something). Good thing I remembered to bring the Kindle charger (??) which actually charges my cell phone as well.
Nevertheless … I arrived with luggage in tact, rented a car, found my B&B, made my way over to the Waterfront in time to see a beautiful sunset, ate a delicious sushi dinner next to a few American girls from Furman who know my brother (totally random), and then ran into a friend (at the same restaurant) who is visiting Cape Town at the same time. Day one of spring break turned out to be lovely.
Here is my favorite photo from the day. They call this the Wheel of Excellence. Love that bicycles hitch a ride also.
