These cute baby Springboks (mascot of the national rugby football team) are for sale at the airport store.

The heat gave way to a cool rainy day in the Western Cape.  I am at Cape Town international airport -heading north to Johannesburg on South African Airways* to visit a friend for a day or two.

*The national carrier is in financial trouble, but the South African government announced in October that it would provide US$ 600 million of financing over the next two years.
