I'm in Cape Town! And yes, so far it's everything I'd been vaguely remembering (I can't describe what a difference it makes having Table Mountain always in the background).
The rest is as expected: boxes, orientation (it turns out my apartment is literally around the corner from both a KFC and a McDonalds - healthy diet, what diet?), and ... err ... the agenda for tomorrow is 'have fun'.
I can do that.
