I met Phil at The Breakwater Lodge and we set out on a Peninsula tour.

We were very luck to find this baboon posing for us atop of the relevant sign just outside SImonstown

"Goodbye cruel world" - Dont worry Phil changed his mind about jumping while we were on Chapmans Peak

We returned to Cape Town via the Atlantic seaboard and made an unsuccessful attempt to ascend Table Mountain in that the cable car was closed due to cold weather and high winds. Thereafter we returned to the Breakwater Lodge where I unfortunately had to bid Phil goodbye after a great day of touring.

This was a great day for me as a tourguide as I found Phil to be person with a good sense of humour and very easy to get on with.  He definitely was "my kind of travel person" and we clicked instantaneously after starting our travels on the Cape Peninsula. We both enjoyed things that were technical and that also contributed to our getting on so well. What a wonderful tour day this turned out to be.
