So, now we've almost spent a week here in Cape Town. It has been great, but we are also looking forward to getting into the 'bush'.
Christian and Thomas spent the weekend doing a 4x4 training course and on Sunday had a fantastic day out with a bunch of local lads from http://www.4x4community.co.za/ . We spent the whole morning driving in sand and mud, and then had a fantastic braai in the afternoon (see pictures). We both managed to get stuck, but certainly learned a lot! Thanks to all the locals, especially Ashley, for this!
Unfortunately Pernille couldn't join us as she has been ill for about three days. But she seems to be coming around :-)
Today we've been whale watching in Hermanus, and saw loads of whales (even if they were quite far away...).
Tommorrow we will go to have a proper dinner, before all the camp cooking, at (reputedly) the best restaurant in South Africa, a place that also features on various lists of the 50 best restaurants in the world. Compared to Denmark it is very cheap, so we need to try it!
Thereafter, we will head north. Test our survival skills and utilise all the trick we've been taught regarding the vehicle.
