Basically today, we just travelled, it wasn’t all that exciting. We had breakfast at the hostel and caught a taxi to the airport around 11 for a 1:00 flight from Zambia to Johannesburg and then from Johannesburg to Cape Town. This really felt like the first real “the only thing we did was travel” day. We didn’t check into our Cape Town hotel until 8:00pm.
Before we could leave our hostel, I had to say goodbye to Zambia and tell her that we have a really nice doggie named Penguin that she could live with if she was in the US. Too bad she lives too far away.
The airport in Livingstone is very different from the other airports we’ve been to. There’s only one gate to wait at and they let you into the waiting area right before it’s time to board the plane, then you leave that area and walk onto the plane. With only about 4 flights per day from here, I suppose you don’t need a complicated airport, huh?
Before the flight leaves they walk up and down the aisle spraying a disinfectant spray of some sort – if you’re sensitive to smells or have sensitive eyes, you’re supposed to cover them for the spraying. Kinda old fashioned, but I didn’t get sick, so maybe they’re onto something here?
Here’s our hotel in Cape Town – it was a “boutique hotel” called Villa Zest – each room was decorated differently, there were only like 6 rooms.. Ours was called Xandadu after the movie. I don’t really get it.
We were ready for some more fine dining in Cape Town and real restaurants – I had fish at Mono’s. Jeff and Erin said the seafood was excellent in Cape Town, so I had to give it a try, and would have to agree!
