World Trip 2006: Day 26 – Cape Town, South Africa

The final day in South Africa turned out to be very rainy so a good day to leave.   I stayed in different accommodation last night as Drifters had overbooked and I got a better place.

My impressions on South Africa are that it is an amazing country with a deep recent history.   It is hard to believe that power was transferred without major loss of life.   There are still very real challenges ahead.   The white minority are still not certain there will not be payback especially after Nelson Mandela is no longer alive. The black majority still do not have access to all the necessary services (like the shanty towns), however you can see great progress has been made.
