Cape Town it isDecember 4, 2008 • By Kelly Glynn
After 14 hours on South African Airways, something the flight attendant called chicken and an hour conversation with some guy from the Arctic Circle in Sweden (I really should not talk to everyone I meet), I’ve arrived in SOUTH AFRICA and a place called Cape Town. Did I mention I already need to toss all that bug spray I packed? What was I thinking? A normal light packer I clearly out did myself this time.
Cape Town is gorgeous. I mean simply incredible and that’s just the backyard of my hotel. The Atlantic is a perfect shade of sky blue and it’s hard to see where the ocean ends and the sky begins. Mountains surround the city and after I get some rest tonight I will be hiking 2 -4 hours up Table Mountain to see panoramic views of the city. Cape Town seems a bit like any other international city but I need to delve in a bit more before I can report back.
Oh and it’s WINDY! I guess I am prone to liking cities known for wind.
It’s 1721 hours here – and getting colder. You sound terrific – and not too knocked out from the travels. What’s the price of Single Malt where you are? How is the food? And how are your accomodations?
Your blog stuff is great – love it.
Stay well – exercise when you can.
Keep the news coming.
it’s so nice to see your voice, kelly! let me be the first to say we miss you……how long is your Cape Town stay?
forget the bug spray, how many tubes of lipstick did you bring????
