|A few final days in Cape Town before returning to Nepal for more hiking (John will spend a few days in San Francisco before meeting up with Christy in Kathmandu).
Last chance to wine and dine for awhile so eating lots of salad and enjoying good wine (Graham Beck).
We've enjoyed Southern Africa, and are already talking about returning to Botswana in another 5 years! We'd like to come back to South Africa (probably the most beautiful country we've visited in terms of diversity and scale of landscapes), but will wait to see how the government tackles it's violent crime and race issues. We don't like the feeling of being on constant guard and the undercurrent of racial animosity (it goes both ways here) has become stronger/more visible the more time we've spent here and the more people we've met. It's a shame and hopefully will heal with time.
