Cape of Good Hope, the end of the world

What a day!!! I mean, it doesn't often happen to go to the end of the world...
But today I have been to Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope, "the most south-western point of the African continent", as the wooden sign there says...
Marcus kindly lended his Saab to Erkki, who was almost blind because he losthis glasses  yesterday in a wind storm..So basically Erkki was doing the driving, Jaakko the eyeing (shouting when perils were approaching) and I was navigating (in fact we got lost on our way back and got stuck in downtown Cape Town for quite a while)
But anyway here are some pics of the amazing things we saw today!

Pic 5. An ostrich in Cape Point (ha, ha since I didn't remember the name of this animal in English I started to shout at Erkki: Stop the car! there is a black chicken with long legs in front of us!)
