We’re boarding the South African Airways Airbus 340-300 for Cape Town. I’m squinting; not used to the bright sunlight of summer.

We left an hour late for Cape Town on Sunday, but made it in just fine on Sunday afternoon.  I was so warm and sweaty in Johannesburg that I replaced my heavy jeans with lighter pants .. and I stuffed the heavy winter jacket and scarf that served me so well in Iceland into one of my suitcases before re-checking it.  It is summer in Cape Town and here in Stellenbosch with  temperatures at 81°F/ 27°C.
