The Atlantic Ocean Meets the Indian Ocean

We are nearing Cape Town, South Africa and the spot where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Indian Ocean.  The Cape is notorious for its violent seas, and we have definitely had a small taste of a rough ocean passage last night.  Right now, we are steaming in a holding pattern outside the Cape Town port, waiting for the wind to die down so we can safetly enter. 

This is the end of another long stretch of classes, and even a few mid-terms for some students.  Although we are not quite to our half-way point in the voyage, we are almost to the half-way point in class meetings.  This is due to the fact that there are several short stops in several more contries after India.  Then we have one more long stretch or courses, and final exams as we cross the Pacific Ocean. 

I promise more pics soon.
