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!
