Well I finally made it to South Africa for my whistle-stop tour south of the equator. I managed to get an exit seat so I wasn't too confined. During the 10 hours of flight I reckon I managed to achieve about 2 hours of somnolent state which has been enough to get me to the evening. Although I would heed the warnings about nocturnal wanderings outside the fortified compound that is the hotel I suspect it is a moot point for today. Hopefully I'll get out and about a bit more tomorrow evening. I fly back on Thursday evening which will make this one of the shorter African excursions on record. Now time to find a menu and eat something before I fall asleep.
