Driving around ... Part 1

Capetown by car

This was our exploration day. With no real schedule set, we left out early in the morning from our very charming B&B called the "40 Winks." Tanja assumed the driving responsibilities again, while I became the GPS manager. We drove and soaked in everything. A few times, I became verklemmt gasping at the shear site of the Shanty town of Langa.

[The video below is not ours , but it is a fine example of the true poverty. It takes 4:44.]

We pulled ourselves together and witnessed "barefooted mothers" carrying their babies across the 6 lane highway. Each time, almost losing their precious loads while traversing the large medians.
