Guess where I am now

Yup, in an internet cafe.

semi-overcast 25 °C

Hello my dears, hope all is well.

Well, I finally made it to South Africa and jolly nice it is too. I spent the whole of last weekend getting here and so was pretty tired but after a dozen or so beers I was fine and dandy. But was pretty ropey come Monday and thought it would be judicious to stay in bed and get over it from there. Finally heaved myself out onto the street and had a nose around and stumbled across a rather nice park named "Company Gardens" where there are lots of interesting things like squirrels and funny looking birds and funny sounding birds and fountains and trees and stuff that you would expect to find in a park. But the best bit is the view of Table Mountain which is stunning! I actually halted mid step when I saw it, there were clouds pouring off of the top of it and it just looked so dramatic.

Yesterday I went back to the park and sunbathed and then my mate Ding Dong and I went to the beach and sunbathed and had a few too many beers and now I am once again a little tired.

Today I went for a stroll, had a fab chicken burger and will later head to a museum followed by a bbq at the hostel. Not sure what I will get up to over the next few days but hopefully the weather will be good and I can shin up Table Mountain for a squiz at the view which is supposed to be spectacular.

Once again, my apologies for the lack of photos, I remembered my SD card and reader but cannot use it in this cafe.

Any how, got to go and look for Ding Dong and get going.

You all take care,
Sarnia xxx
