Hello my Chickens, did you miss me?
Well I never really went away, just went dark.
I know, I know, you thought I had forsaken you.
(With apologies to Train):
Maybe I went down in an airplane, got fried getting suntanned, fell in a cement mixer full of quicksand, met a shark under water, was caught in a mudslide, eaten by a lion, dried up in the desert, drowned in a hot tub!
Not so much! Since we last talked I have left Windhoek, took a 22 hour bus trip to Cape Town, been stranded in a gilded cage in the suburb of Muizenburg, explored the Southern suburbs and braved the Metro Train into Cape Town and survived.
I have a rental car, have driven around the Cape Peninsula, camped in gale force winds and had a scary looking but harmless Mole Snake slither past my on-the-ground-cross-legged-sitting-self not 3 feet away *hastily stands up* *zips tent firmly shut*!! Saw friends from a long lost but warmly cherished life and was sent off with love, a full belly and a sense of direction.
I am now in the Whale-watching captial of South Africa (at least until about a month ago ;-( ) Hermanus and I am staring down the last few weeks of my African adventure.
I can’t believe how time has flown, but I have been working on a few posts to catch you up. My photo posting capabilities are slightly compromised, so bear with me while I sort that out. For now you can imagine the dulcite tones of my voice talking to you and the iphone contributions that can be easily uploaded for your viewing pleasure.
Sorry I left you alone for so long, I am alive and kicking so watch out kids…..She’s baaaaccckk!
With much love and more cheekiness than ever, your intrepid Gingersnaptraveller, Emma
