|In the shark cage
|Sunset from Table Mountain
By the time they gave out the suits (which were the leftover suits: they hired a security guy to watch out for their gear, but the guy stole it and sold it to poachers) and let the cage down I was sea sick for good. I went into the cage at the second round and felt pretty good again in the cold water. We saw some sharks pass by, but not very well. The water was murky and the sharks didn't come very close. Later when I was out again and I fed the fishies, a shark came and rattled the cage for a little while. This was quite impressive, especially for those inside the cage. After a while two other girls fed the fishies, but I don't think they partied too much the previous evening, they were purely sea sick. We then headed back and had lunch. Well, the others had lunch, I felt better again but not enough to eat. After this we were driven back to Cape Town. Once there Anders asked me if I wanted a shot. I declined until some time later when I was better again :)
The next day we went on a peninsula day tour. We were picked up around 7.30am if I remember well. We drove south out of town and on to Boulders where we went watching the tiny cape penguins. After that we went further south until we reached the Cape of Good Hope national park. There we made a bicycle tour to the picnic area. Later we moved on to the cape's end where the old and the new lighthouses stand. It was a cold and rainy morning, but the afternoon was quite sunny.
