Saturday, September 15th
Our wake up call this morning was 3:30 AM! Ugh! We departed from the hotel at 5:00 AM for our motorcoach ride from Hazyview to Johannesburg.
At a rest stop on our drive to Johannesburg. We encountered this giant moth that was at least 6 inches in width! It was a type of emperor moth.
We had a flight that left in the early afternoon and arrived in Cape Town around 4:00 PM. We boarded another motorcoach that transported us to our hotel, NH The Lord Charles, outside of the city. It was beautiful weather when we arrived!
Today was a long day of sitting! We had read about the water shortage in South Africa. We noticed a lot of public restrooms that had the water turned off in the faucets and instead had hand sanitizer or some had a light spray from the faucet or only one sink that worked. This hotel had a sand timer in the shower and they asked that you use it and only take a two minute shower. We saw this sign a lot.
After claiming our luggage, the ten of us eventually met and walked from the hotel over to a restaurant across the street.
It was an excellent meal with wonderful traveling companions!
