Stellenbosch to Cape Agulhus to Cape Town, February 29, 2016

We left Stellenbosh, heading to the most southerly tip of Africa: Cape Agulhus.

Along the way-


The fields are huge-


and I've only seen a few two wheel drive tractors.  The countryside is beautiful-


The style of homes in the towns like Napier is interesting-


Most towns also have a large church-


Cape Agulhus-


is Africa's most southern point and is where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet-


The waves are the second highest in the world, after Cape Horn-


and there have been many shipwrecks, including the Marie Else.  This is a figurehead replica from the French ship that went down in 1877-


We've been warned!


Driving in to Cape Town we passed many townships or slums where blacks live-



Homes are made from whatever they can find-



Government built homes-


It's the last day on the truck - the past 4 months have gone quickly (some days) and dragged others 😀.  We've driven over 21,000 km in 4 months and experienced a lot.  I am so lucky!
