First Day in Capetown

We finally arrived in Capetown today at around one in the afternoon after a long journey from Germany. We flew with Turkish Airlines. The service was alright but they charged us 90 Euro for gear one way. At least they didn't want to know the weight. On our way we stopped in Johannesburg. When the plane was landing, a group of South African pupils started to sing a song that sounded typically African to me. That was so cool.
Checking out in Capetown was surprisingly easy. Our gear arrived immediately and the new MFC double roller bag proved to be really helpful. You can just grab it and pull it behind you.
Here's a picture of my luggage at Capetown Airport:

We met the woman that wanted to hand us over our cars for the month in front of the airport. She was super friendly and very relaxed. She told us we had to come to her company to get the second car and sign the contracts. That's what we did. So it was the four of us in one old but stylish Mercedes with all the gear on the roof:

Our accommodation is ok too. It's a hostel and very close to Sunset Beach.

There was no wind today but the swell was quite good so we went surfing. Here's a picture of the evening session:
