Back to Cape Town

A wonderful drive back to Cape Town today from Tulbagh. The spectacular Bain's Kloof Pass took us to the attactive town of Wellington, and then through the Paarl and Stellenboch wine areas to the False Bay coast.

We met up with Jon and Amanda at one of our favourite restaurants, the Harbour House at Kalk Bay, and then on to Cape Town via Chapman's Peak Drive which leads to one of the best views of Lion's Head, Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles.

Tonight we are all staying at the Capetonian Hotel, and tomorrow Jon and Amanda fly to Jo'burg, then on to Dubai and London.  Barbara and I leave Cape Town tomorrow evening, and hopefully we all arrive at the same time at Heathrow on Sunday morning.  It's been an interesting two weeks in Cape Town, and, looking back, we can't believe how fortunate we have actually been. If Comminution '10 had been scheduled a week later, it would almost certainly have not taken place!  I hope that all the European delegates make it home by the end of the week.
