Final day in Cape Town.
Final day to enjoy my two weeks break.
Final day of the south to south to south adventure.
Sad to leave, but excited to go home!
Before I talk about what we did today, let’s check out some photos of the unique prison-turned-campus-cum-hotel that was our hideout for 8 days and 7 nights. The photos were taken two days earlier, while we were waiting for our pick up to Cape Point.
Original prison features were still intact, giving the hotel a genuine character.
Big metal doors at the entrance of Block B.
The new block - Block A - where we stayed.
Alright, now back to the final day activities (which weren’t that exciting anyway). We took a taxi from the hotel to the airport. Went straight to the tax refund counter, submitted our receipts and got the refund in the form of cheques. Then we checked in, went through passport clearance and cashed the cheque at a bank branch in the departure hall.
Had some breakfast while waiting for boarding call.
A lost bird. Which flight are you taking, birdie?
Toast + tuna + avocado + eggs. Very filling.
Around noon, flight MH 202 EZE-CPT-KUL arrived from Buenos Aires to drop off and pick up passengers in Cape Town. At 1:45pm local time, we stepped into the Boeing 747-400 aircraft and were on our way home.
Good bye South Africa! Good bye South America! My dream vacation had come true!
