Monday night/ arrival in Cape Town

My journey to Cape Town at the southwestern tip of Africa was complete on Monday evening.  Here are a few more pictures from the connecting airports.

The escalators up to the cavernous lounge at Doha’s premium connection terminal.
Porcelain souvenirs from the shop downstairs. (Hmm. The camel looks a lot friendlier than the oil sheik).
And here are some furry camels from a caravan depiction.
The flight tracker on the flight from Doha to Johannesburg shows us crossing the equator. The blue blob on the right is one of the great African lakes, Lake Victoria. By surface area only Lake Michigan-Huron and Lake Superior (in the USA) are larger than lake Victoria.
I love these African patterns .. in Johannesburg’s Oliver Tambo airport.
And this life-size African elephant is made from wire mesh with little beads. (Amarula is a cream liqueur manufactured in South Africa – made with sugar, cream and the fruit of the African marula tree).
