Last week it was time for us to head back to Cape Town to meet up with Will’s family, so we left a few days early to stop at some fun spots along the way. The first two nights we stayed in Oudtshoorn, the ostrich capital of South Africa. The highlight was getting dropped off at the top of Swartberg Mountain (where there was snow and it was about 35 degrees!) and riding bikes 33 miles back to our backpackers hostel, stopping at the Kango Caves and an ostrich farm. We were really blown away by the beauty of this part of South Africa – it looked and felt like we were in the middle of the Swiss Alps! Then on our third night we drove to Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of South Africa and the spot where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet. As you would expect it was stormy and the coast was very rugged. Then we drove back to Cape Town and ate at Cape Town’s only truly Mexican restaurant, El Burro. It was our first Mexican food in six months, and man was it good.
