Yesterday we climbed Table Mountain. It's the rainy season, and we were lucky to have it clear, warm, and dead calm. Cape Town has about the most spectacular setting I've seen for a city. My friends compared it to Rio de Jainero. Today my calves are aching from all the climbing.
We spent last night at Long Street watching the South Africa-Mexico game outside a bar. The energy was unbelievable. When South Africa scored I thought the vuvuzelas would shatter my eardrums. Even with the tie it's still a great start for bafana bafana.
The police presence is very heavy. Even with all the craziness I still feel quite safe.
