Trip Hiatus

Watching the sunset from our apartment in Camps Bay

Watching the sunset from our apartment in Camps Bay

We are on a bit of a trip hiatus at the moment. I haven’t taken my camera out in almost a week. We are staying in a very comfortable fully furnished rental apartment across the road from the beach at Camps Bay in Cape Town, South Africa. After over three months of non-stop adventure this has been our chance to catch our breath. Cape Town was an ideal choice with all the comforts of home. We can drink the tap water (yay), do our own laundry, and everyone speaks English. They have great grocery stores (home cooked meals!!) and restaurants and things are relatively inexpensive for us. For example: buying a bottle of good South African wine costs less than $5 CAD a bottle although connoisseurs can pay up to $20 for the best of the best. We have been to the theatre for a couple of movies and it only costs $2 on cheap night and $4.50 all other times. You also get to pick your seat when you buy the ticket so you only need to arrive as the show is starting. We also used our time here to deal with future trip requirements including getting our travel visas for China. When I last wrote Leanne wasn’t feeling well. I am happy to say she is getting back to normal, but she did have a visit with a local doctor and was prescribed some medicine to help kill the bacteria she picked up. We are going over to friends for dinner tonight and all is well.
