10,000th day in Cape Town
Today is my 10,000th day. Having calculated it a few months ago (at timeanddate.com) I knew that it landed on April 1st. Kind of ironic, but true. 10,000 days is 27 years, 4 months, and 18 days. Perhaps yours has passed you by, or maybe its just around the corner, but its worth noting either way.
I am currently in Cape Town, over on the west coast of South Africa. Its truly one of the most beautiful cities on the planet. Set on a long peninsula with a 3,000 foot mountain range in the middle. Its a very progressive, exciting, cosmopolitan city that still has close ties to nature, the ocean, and the environment. You come here to visit, and immediately start thinking of how you might be able to find your future job here some day.
We spent the morning driving down the cape peninsula, stopping at some beautiful beaches along the way. We drove up a windey steep road to Chapman's peak with stunning views of the sea and mountains to the right. Then we stopped off to see the penguins at Boulder's beach in Simon's Town.
After lunch and an ice cream cone, we are now heading to the Cape Town International Jazz Festival. Hoping the rest of the day will be as fun as the first half. What a great way to spend my 10,000th day.
