Day 5 South Africa Adventure

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.IMG_2214

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.IMG_2252

After claiming our luggage, the ten of us eventually met and walked from the hotel over to a restaurant across the street.IMG_2250
