Finally arrived in Cape Agulhas
From Johannesburg, our trip took us South along Highway N1 to Cap Agulhas, the most southerly point of the African continent. The drive takes almost a full day along a very lonesome route. One of the most amazing sights of this part of the trip came at night with the completely clear skies giving us the chance to see the Milky Way with incredible clarity.
After waking up this morning we saw a truck across the road from us releasing racing pidgeons. Further along the route, we met a friend we made last year selling windmills made from cans.
Another surprising sight in the middle of the desert is the Lord Miller Hotel with the old London Leyland double-decker bus as their famous sign.
At night, we arrived at Cap Agulhas. With only a few days until the World Record attempt begins, we are now on our way to Cape Town to meet our friend and third driver Sam Roach who has flow in from England today. Sam will be taking over the blog updates twice daily from now on, as the full team moves towards our final preparations for the start of the Challenge on Friday at 10:00hrs.
