Goodbye to South Africa

We left Durban last night and said our goodbyes to the African continent for probably the last time. Despite the dire warings about the likelihood of pickpockets and muggings we really have enjoyed the opportunity to see the Cape Town and Durban and the animals in their natural state.
We had another great day in Durban yesterday the morning at the uShaka Marine Centre with its large aquarium fashioned to look like a Shipwreck. We had time for Celina and Melinda to damage the credit cards then back to the ship briefly before we took our arranged tour of the Valley of a thousand hills just outside Durban. Here among the rolling hills and very expensive real estate we were taken to the pheZulu park for a look at some of the largest reptiles in Africa (Josh was delighted as he had already seen reptiles and spiders that morning.) and were give a half hour Zulu dance show. Back at the ship we sat and enjoyed a Country and Western performance by the ships resident singers and dancers. The clocks started moving forward last night and will do so until we reach Perth in a little under 2 weeks. Celina and I have joined the Fun Choir and are part of over 300 voices and tonight we will celbrate Celina's birthday with Shoshanna and Felix.
