So here we are after travelling overnight. The flight was delayed by a half hour because of a fire in the place that makes the meals. The hotel is fantastic. We are sitting outside with a glass of wine waiting for some sandwiches to be brought down for lunch. Although its midwinter here and all the locals are wearing coats we are in our short sleeves basking in the sun, taking in the spectacular vista of Table Mountain. We are planning to go into Cape Town tomorrow and spend the day there. We have attached a few pictures of the views from our room.
