When my Emirates 777 touched down in Cape Town yesterday, I reached a personal milestone. I have now stood on all 6 continents. I am finally here… Africa! The weather is beautiful, the scenery majestic and the people are so vibrant.
This morning I had the pleasure to look out from the Cape of Good Hope into the great Southern Atlantic. Freddie was our local guide and he refreshed my memory of the early explorers, such as Vasco da Gama who found the maritime route to India in search of spices.
The memory cards were filling up today when we visited a local penguin colony and got to sit with the formally dressed birds as they frolicked and played. Tomorrow I will be up at 4:30 AM for my cage dive with the mighty great white shark. In two days I have checked off three items on my bucket list. TV manufacturer “LG” has a great tagline that comes to mind right now.
