"We know now that they were following us for about a month. Cry To our we did. Notice strange things happening. But when you're working underground you are. For most of the time, you're a bit paranoid you. You kind of imagine that everyone is looking at you knows what you're doing. And looking back off to the arrest. We realized that they were following us for quite a while. In Nineteen Seventy, eight, twenty, nine year, old Tim Jenkin was active in the political efforts of South Africa's anti-apartheid movement. The country had been operating under apartheid for thirty years. A system that institutionalized racial segregation. The word apartheid means a partner. and. The government was controlled by white minority. Tim Jenkin White. He grew up in Cape Town. So I grew up under the situation with everything was divided. So. spatially, cities and towns divided the white areas. Black areas. So we went to white schools. Were black schools in black areas. Everything was separated even buildings had separate lifts for White People. For Black People. Talk said benches, white people and black people and certain beaches with designated for black. People. Most of the beaches with what people So. I just accepted eight. Because I didn't know any better I just assumed that the way things were. And then. Maneuver Twenty one years old the to the K.. He says, everyone he met their asked him what he thought about the fact that he lived in a country that was so racially segregated. He says he was actually confused. But then he started seeing programs on TV. Shows that would never have been broadcast in South Africa about the consequences of apartheid and at first I, didn't believe these These films that I was seeing. I thought it was all propaganda. After awhile, and after reading books that I couldn't obtain in South Africa. I began to realize the started thing is something quite terrible. I'd be living. Positive it. Really maintaining it in the sense and not understanding. What's Black South Africans? was suffering. He, returned to South Africa, and started studying sociology at the University of Cape Town. There, he became friends with another white student named. Stephen Lee. And started cheering books that he had brought back from the UK. anti-apartheid. Books and political histories that were censored in South Africa. At. This time the most prominent anti-apartheid organization was the African National Congress also known as the ANC. Nelson Mandela was a member of the ANC. By the nineteen seventies, the organization was banned in South Africa that had been declared unlawful. Seen by the White Minority Threat to. Public. Order. They operated underground and Tim and Stephen had heard that if you wanted to get involved, you could try contacting their office in. London. So the two of US traveled to the. UK. and. Simply went and knocked on the door. and. It was quite an amusing. Incident. because. The person who received US Said please just sit down there and you'll be wasted. Then he went into his office and type something on a piece of paper. The piece of paper said. You should not come here. Please meet me at the cafe around the corner in half an hour. So that's what we did. Tim and Stephen met with members of the ANC several times. And they asked to be put to work back home in south? Africa, the said Okay you can go back and sit up your print shop. And we'd need to teach you various things like security matters, how to conduct yourself in the underground. And showed us a few other. Innovative. Devices for for distributing leaflets and information one of these was. The is the leaflet bomb. It's not really a bomb. It was really just. Kind of exploding device. That would kill. Hundreds of leaflets up into the air, and then they would rain down on a crowd target crowd somewhere. So we went back to South Africa. With this knowledge. And set up shop.

"cape town" Discussed on Extra Pack of Peanuts Travel Podcast
"That's very cool. So Salinas was the first stop with the so. This is why I loved South at one. Looks out the half half the half grilled half fried and when. I knew that you could do that or at least I asked I could. And they could then when we were in Plettenberg Bay. We ate a really nice meal up. This place called the fat fish and again that overlooks the water. And again I asked for the half half. And they're like yeah. Sure so. Is Half Grilled Fried Awesome again? We stopped Salinas on the way on the drive back and I did the half again. So in the span of four days. I did three half half the girl in the Fried Kalmar and he was just every time it was. It was incredible so love love. Love that I'm going to give a quick and if it's not the same one well I don't have a specific one that I really love other than I really enjoyed going to the. Va Waterfront and they have a lot of stalls there with different restaurants like a small food court and we kept going back gaining this one flat bread which I hope is still there. I don't know what the name of it was just spread. Yeah it's not a huge market. So you'd be able to find. It was so good I got it at least twice. Maybe three times twice a day and then another time we went to a different market which was much bigger and that was the biscuit. The old biscuit smell the oldest open on Saturdays or Sundays. But it's an old biscuit mill. That's and it's huge at. They have restaurants in there. That are there all the time which we didn't get into the one that we wanted to because it was a long way. Michelle Obama had been there before but they do on the weekends. A market with its did intense. You know what I mean. It's like a moving market and they had tons of vendors in there so that was just really fun to how they do really good food markets. They're old biscuit mill where there was open a lot more than that like the inside but then the big outdoor market was attached to his. I think only open Saturdays or Sundays. Something that One more shout. I thought you were going to say this. When we stayed in Stellenbosch in the wine country we had the barbecue. No we stayed a place called Reddin Berg Manner Lucan Leon. Who were the host and their incredible. They're still there are people who listen. Just nation dyers on Cape Town have gone and sped. Hi to them for us so locally on people we love you. Luke would make incredible breakfast every morning. Like just it came with. It was like a Ben Breakfast and you know the the room was off season. Two is pretty cheap. Anyways breakfast itself was just absolutely incredible. So weird stuff ourselves on homemade breakfast so they also did. They did a special barbecue for us. Which is really good. Breakfast stands out because we had like we had it four or five mornings. You know however long. We're they're always look forward to that breakfast. Brandenburg Berg manner trap definitely loves a good breakfast. And then Luke Luke Leon are faves. Yeah I mean we just had a lot of good times in Africa. Really good food. So it's you. If you are a Foodie you can find some awesome spots there all right Ben a little longer than how best memory I mean I think one of my best memories was going to the wine country as trump said Lucan. Leon made us breakfast but then it was my sister's birthday when we were there so we have like a private barbecue out on a no one else was staying at this state when we were there. Were the only three guests. Yeah I think someone came the last day or was there the first day but basically we had a full run and it was just incredible. It's beautiful and a really special night but I think when I think about this whole trip the one thing that stands in my mind is the day that we started out on the garden route and we got to hermanus which is like the first little town on the route so not far from from Cape Town at all. Maybe thirty forty five minutes and everybody says that if you WANNA see Wales go to Hermanus and you'll be able to see them but you know they're not they're all the time so I spend the night you'll be sure to see them. We drive up park the car. No lie we are. We walked to the water and there are two two right there. I mean we parked the car and had to walk like twenty steps to the parking. The car could see the water and we just looked over the edge and there were two huge wells right. I mean I felt almost. They were close enough to touch. They weren't but they could not have been more than twenty feet away from us. Well when we went down on the rock we went down the rocks. I mean it was just incredible. I was like Oh my gosh. I can't believe that this is happening. And what luck that. We are only here to stopping you know in the town for maybe an hour. We didn't even eat there. We just stopped and we saw the whales into this is incredible we we did also ask someone at a bookstore and I said man is it always this easy to come to remind us to see the whales but we just pulled up and there's two huge ones right there and the guys like now like you'll see him once a day twice a day. Maybe but you guys obviously got pretty lucky. That was really there are so many member. Bring up stuff that because this trip was three weeks. Yeah Yeah Three. Weeks is a bit of a longtime in a good way for us. Not Chilling fast and almost every day was new experiences so I could honestly point two seven or a best experiences. Now we do have a whole destination diary on Cape Town and we also on our website have a whole I wrote out the whole itinerary day by day every single thing we did because we were so excited about how awesome our trip was. When we came back we went into detail every little bit of it so you can check that out. I'm going to say though just for my overall best experience was hiking to the top of my word now. I know that's probably your your sister's least favorite. That was such a hard hike. It was harder than we imagined but yes it just made me feel so good. I mean you got to the top and you're like I did this. I started at the water and now I'm on the top of this iconic amazing mountain with incredible views. It was just it was it was awesome. I we didn't start at the water. We drove to the parking lot right. Well I mean we're at basically you love swimming and then hop alley neighbor. Andrews is up next to the one right. Dr Okay. Three we were we were at sea level essentially and then we got to the top. So that and I'll throw a second on here because why not? We're already going over anyway. We got the compressor. Don't worry the hype that we didn't Plettenberg Bay so that actually was my favorite height and actually I didn't like as much as you guys. It's just different type of hiking but we this crazy route peninsula whips of my Gosh. I completely forgot about that. Even though it's one of my favorite things we've ever done on a trip because like table mountain but table mountain was pretty steep and it was a lot of steps steps travis. Very good at steps rather just like slowly inclined but I hate I hate stars. Heather's really good at going down and I'm like a little scared cat. Going down steps us a little mountain going down but going up especially steps. I'm great sell. Plettenberg Bay hike Was just so incredible. It was very long because I mean it took us hours in our huge peninsula. Hold I mean the views that we got. There were so amazing. There were any other people there it was. We were there in August September so their off-season but not it was still you know you have my shorts and and and a Hoodie on or something. You know it's still wasn't crazy cold but yes. The hiking was incredible. We're not huge hikers. We like you but we don't go out of our way to to plan trips around that but Plettenberg Bay and the table mountain one. I mean you've got to do it if you want to cheat way out of the I mean you can't take the cable car up and down. We took it down. I think you should hike up and take it down. But Heather would say do take it both ways. You can also drive. Another thing is driving to lion's head which is the other kind of mountain where you can look table mountain so that you can drive all the way up to the top. We did that too for sunset. That was awesome incredible. I mean there was not a bad day on this entire trip. It was awesome. Okay Well Best. Best activity okay. The next combine it with the hiking although I will throw one special thing in here because this is also a best memory we landed in Cape Town and I think it was late at night so he went to bed but we made sure that we were meaning the friend very early the next morning so that we wouldn't get too much into the jet lag and we would just like hit the ground running which is a tip that we try to do when we travel and we met up with our friend. Jack Lean and she takes us around Cape Town a little bit. Vna Waterfront and she's like listen guys. This is a beautiful day. It's early in the tourist season and so the weather can be really inclement here and it's beautiful so you should take this opportunity and just get up and helicopter take a cruise on the the C- on the bay water and trust you like doing that stuff but I was actually a little nervous about helicopter. I never flown in a helicopter before and I get somewhat motion sick right when I was younger so I was a little nervous. I getting sick on the helicopter positive. It'd be somewhat expensive but in Cape Town. At least four years ago it was really affordable. I mean you can spend hundreds of dollars taken helicopter right. I think that this was for all of us. One hundred and twenty. Us dollars. I WANNA say okay. Yeah I was GONNA say a little more maybe fifty to sixty a person. We either way either way it was under two dollar twenty twenty five minute helicopter ride and the cool part about it was. We just got there so one of her things was. Hey if you get up now you can kind of get the light of the land you know like from above you can see everything because it is such a unique city. Had It's right there on the water but you have the mountain and then on the other side is starts wine country. I mean there's so many little pockets of it so that was a cool like a rockstar. Because I'd never been in a helicopter before and we did it and was spur of the moment and didn't have to like Hemmitt Hall over it. He was like yeah. Let's do it awesome. That you were spontaneous and then then we even talked him into doing a sunset bowl crews. Yeah on the same day. We dislike good day good. I could first full day. Yeah so anyway. Those are great activities to do and also a great memory. Yeah I I the hiking and everything that we talked about. I'll throw in the fact that we did go down to the Cape Good Hope which was pretty neat to and get to see the penguins most beautiful sight. I mean this is easy. Just the whole town the whole city of out. I mean you have the ocean right there and then you have. These huge striking mountains of Table Mountain is a very unique mountain. Because it's kind of like flat on the top so just to see that landscape and have it be in a city. It is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. Yeah I think it's it's I don't think it is the prettiest city I've ever been to. And the best view of it would either have been from the helicopter ride. 'cause from the top of Table Mountain. It's awesome but you're not seeing Table Mountain Avenue so the helicopter ride and also if you go north which you wouldn't have done because we were jacqueline. She had a car that first day. Still let me take you up to some of these these suburbs. That are north of Table Mountain. That you wouldn't come up to normally like they're nice to live in your stores so you can look back at it and so that was really neat because we wouldn't have had that kind of took us to that one beach where like you're literally standing on the beach and you can see. Capetown and you can see table mountain and it's just. It's really stunning. So.

Filling the gaps
"I'm Steven Seagraves. Joined by Seth Miller and Fayza Mood Gentlemen. How are you doing? Well Yeah are you. I'm feeling a little better. Not One hundred percent. But I'm getting there. Just good this. This episode is being recorded solely with your right year. Yes yes so. I have no since of Stereo should we? Should we record him on? Then that's what it feels like the spoiler alert. They're all mono gotta time production and that's where they always end. We should edit this so stevens voice only comes. I left to come out of the right now. The problem is I can't do that. You can do that man. Let's let's think that'd be mean to our listeners. Think it'd be really peel off for sure A. Let's just start off by talking about what we're doing to fill our time. I'm working from home Seth I'm guessing you are as well and I got a call at work call today and so I was like. Oh so you know how you adjusting us in that. You're going to work. I always work from home did I. And I actually don't even go out on a normal day anyways this really has to say it hasn't affected me because it definitely has but on a day-to-day basis. My experience is very very similar. To what normally as I don't go to the gym I was GonNa say how can affect you in your navy reporter. Well right I mean mentally. I'm a disaster but physically. I'm sitting in the same place. I would have been anyways this weekend though normally would be on my way to Hamburg Aircraft Interiors Expo that has postponed slash canceled. I think it will actually cancelled but they admitted that That was supposedly Friday. Actually somewhat pleasantly surprised. I was able to D M American Airlines and British Airways cancelled. The flight was booked on the American and American process. The refund. They. I want me to go. Do it myself And the American process for getting a refund on their website is crap but when I went click the button is. We're sorry you can't cancel this ticket online. Ibm's him back and last night. That took care of it for me and this morning got back in touch with me told me is getting one hundred thirty two euros refunded calls. That make you feel Stephen. That's the opposite experience of united. Yes I mean at this point. I think I'm just going to file a charge. Back in right at the OT complaint wasn't what our friends at the exact same issue five tickets United Future Refunds Fry Open disputes and FAU DOT complaint if they even had chesser columbine. But if I have issues. I do the exact same thing. So here's a question for you guys. Because I believe it or not. In a similar scenario scenario my ticket home from Hamburg was an SAS operated reward issued by united and again. That's flights aren't operating. So they're gonNA is. This is just an award ticket. At worst I pay seventy five dollar redeposit. Fina get my points back. But they've canceled the flights in theory in any other scenario the the points would just get refunded for free. I can obviously issue a charge back for the taxes which were not insignificantly than Europe. But do you think stand a chance of getting my points for free or just assume? I'M GONNA pay the five dollars and have not combined until dollars you'll be able to do without the Without the thing is they're dragging their feet on refund simply because they don't want they want to hold onto the cash right so their latest policy is they will. Your ticket will stay OPEN FOR YEAR. And then they will process a refund for you right. Which assuming they're in business assuming they're in business. I mean I would hope that. If the government doesn't give these airlines a lifeline that part of those stipulations they can play stupid games. This is just ridiculous. I had a a friend asking me. His parents were supposed to go. This pet last Wednesday supposed to be on the united nonstop to Cape Town and then from there to Singapore on Swiss and then home if you or whatever and then back to the states and was asking me you know how to get out of it. Essentially we've been going back and forth like a month trying to help him out on that and Donna Mile. Just wait. Just wait. Just wait as the rules as more and more cancels things will get better for you and he eventually got to the point where they took a voucher because I think the united out athletes still operated even though this we're canceled at that point but he said his his parents. His parents were concerned that the vouchers would be nullified in a bankruptcy. I would be too I. It's a fairly assumption is it? I've thinking back of other airline bankruptcy. I don't remember that being something that they went after as far as assets they haven't but there's nothing asserted that they won't. I mean this might be more dire than anything else. They've had to go through in the past we. We are certainly unprecedented in unprecedented Era The industry. But I feel like I feel like I get I get. Why United's trying to do it. I think that they're doing it in the wrong way. Like you know. If American like American said to us they cancelled your flight. They're going to refund the. There's no reason. United should be like. Oh well we're GONNA keep your money and you're gonNA get a certificate for that case like Eve. In my case I would say my cases the like the extreme in maybe so mine is they delayed thirty two hours and basically making me leave a day early to to make connections. Chicago incidents Thirty two hours. And I like that may be a scenario where it's inconvenient for me. I could see cancelling it and keeping a credit. I don't like it. I think it's wrong but I think cancellation of a flight is more important than than my scenario. You know what I mean like. Think it's more. It's more useful for that person to get a refund in comparison to me so I don't know I just. It's disappointing that united to doing it. This way You know just actually has a flight scheduled for Wednesday that she's supposed to Austin she's not going to take the trip but I mean there's four people on the plane and amazed. I'm amazed Alaskan cancelled. It was actually talking to someone earlier today. Alaska of all the US carriers. Alaska Airlines has reduced. Its schedule. The least yeah which is really strange to me If you WANNA put on your foil hat and go for a fun ride. One of the arguments was. Maybe they want bankruptcy to undo the mess they made with the Virgin America by how might be a little bit extreme. But yeah it's really interesting how little they've adjusted their schedules Compared to obviously the big the biggest airlines Delta American united have cut massive chunks. But a lot of that international and international that Alaska never did anyways but domestic loads crater. Like jetblue is doing whether calling rolling cancellations where a day or two before the flight. If the loads are too low. They're just canceling. The trips. Reminded one hundred one hundred fifty of the eight hundred flights a day. They're doing that too now because they literally I mean. These aren't flights with single. Digit numbers of passengers. And I've pilot friend of mine. They're posted on Instagram of thirteen souls. Onboard for crew was ninety four crew nine passengers. Which is you have to cancel it. I would think a one off whatever maybe not but this is not a one off. This is the new regular. Yeah and like. That's the thing with justice flights. Like if they really wanted to they could cancel her flights and re Booker via Seattle or San Jose City And maybe put more people in planes but from what I've seen is just been masking insulations on her plate where Whitley were full. 'cause it's break here and no one's traveling now so these are all regional flights This is Portland Austin. Non-south is one seventy five thousand guys. No no it's it's not to Airbus seven seven. Three nine on the way back doesn't do anything at the regional contracts. It's it's the hipster expresses usually full. Well you know what's funny? Obsessed mention keep to honor their nose. Looking Newer Capetown is going out empty. Capetown Newark is coming back full. Everybody's evacuating Africa. Yeah it's crazy. Well that would cause I was wondering why they're running that play all the way through the end of the schedule and they cancelled everything else. I started looking at the loads mccaw. That makes more sense. Yeah there's a lot of very symmetrical loads right now Someone was saying the China Southern puts three eighties back on L. A. X. Three times a week now for those you worry that the eighties never fly again. At least for the very short period of time China Southern brought back by apparently the the SCUTTLEBUTT is empty coming into L. A. And full gone out with three Patriots Knees China as well so take with a grain of salt. It was shared by someone who is a Chinese national by suggesting that the Chinese of the United States are fearful especially in Los Angeles area. If you're full of the medical system WANNA get back to China where they think they'll be treated better. I think at this point China's probably the safest China or South Korea Safest PLACES TO BE. Certainly the most skilled incompetent in dealing with the situation. Exactly I I did find it interesting. That Singapore has now banned even transit passengers. I mean that's kind. I mean that's a. That's a new one for me now.

You know relates to that end in people a fearful of schizophrenia. Because they don't understand they tend to attach labels to which as stigmatize patients in the community.

Fiona McIntosh - Escape with a master storyteller
"We like enough to have in published on. It is Fiona McIntosh who has been back to three CR time and time again with her books books. Thank you for returning but more so. Thank you for your well researched and very readable books. Thank you thanks Jen. Now Fianna you bill characters from a social political or moral dilemmas this time. It's the Grant Family Henry Grant. It has made new money You down that well. He has been quite canny in how he's invested his money and he's taken and massive risks. Now where this book is set in Victorian Times sort of the eighteen seventies when You know it was still very The wealth was old Families were quite Stodgy super-conservative But Henry's one of those sparkley little characters who takes massive risk and go traveling the world and collects artworks that nobody's ever seen before from the exotic tick places of the world and he built a house that everybody sneers at 'cause it's like a a But he's making money and that makes him Sort cliff dangerous and one to look out for and I like the way that you know people from old money look to to him and his beautiful wife Lillian and say look the way he lavishes it on her. She's like a chandelier. She sparkles so much. Now they've got a daughter. This is Lillian and Henry. It's Loayza yes also beautiful. And a son Richie but from a different Jess Martha. Aw yes I mean. Henry's not exactly you know. He's not following the normal way. He's a bit of a rebel. Yes he has had this Son Out of wedlock. Okun and Lillian hates the Sun. Because it's not hers and he's He's always he's paid for the schooling though. It's boarding school for the Sun. And this son Reggie and Louisa do know of each other Oh yes and love each other. Actually Louisa his stepsister. Sorry Louis the the we're getting all our wives mixed up. Louisa really does love Stepbrother and feels. He's unfairly done by. She doesn't like being the only child and this glorious little glittery jewel in the crown of the grant family and it's why indeed that she is capricious in how she treats them in terms of who she ends up marrying. Well now the father decides it should be a new bridge built on this weird and wonderful estrogen brings over. The Scottish engineer can call James Night. What happens how James is romantic soul? He's a very poor little man but he's completely besotted with this beautiful daughter talk and he decides in making this bridge for the father to forge a sort of a a stream that is running through the property that he would make Akishino to this beautiful woman. And it's a very fairytale light bridge and it's in the making of this bridge and how he describes it to That they fall in love. Yes so look. This is where the books star Yes. We haven't ruined anything for anyone at at this point is that James Louisa leave England wherefore. Where does the bookstore? Well James is tired of the disdain. That he's is being shown to him by the grant family in. He thinks he is a man of merit. And that you know. He's an engineer and he would like to try and do the right thing by this beautiful beautiful woman and also their new child Clementine And it certainly the grunt family. Now turn their focus to Clementine. They think she is. The new jewel will in the crown and James Decides well. Actually we're not going to stay. We are going to Australia. We're going to say after Australia. And the family though heartbroken. Reckon believes well at least as a society in Australia and they can you know our daughter. Louisa in our little precious granddaughter can at least live in a good society society but of course. There's a shock coming. It's a shantytown. Hey gets completely besotted by the idea in Cape Town when they Step off the ship. Whilst the ship is taking on supplies James says about the diamond rush of eighteen. Seventy one sorry the in an unforgiving land and where the British struggled for survival almost every creature that roamed was capable of killing them. If the summers didn't get them I assed well our cat now. So James The engineer is digging data and and Clementine and loayza living in Shandra tent and Louis annoys the cheese So we're not ruining every anything because this all happens in the open Ning few pages of the book and it really sets up the story because Louisa in loving James and realizing the mistake of that love That he is an adventurer he is a free spirit and that they've both been very careless with their child who they both loved very much but they've been careless with her six years old. Yeah she's between five and six and she she knows she's dying dying and she is going to leave this most precious child in the care of a man who is beginning to lose his mind because of the failure Ed to seek his fortune. They've been there actually in the alluvial diggings and he's finding nothing he hasn't found anything and he refuses to take any of the family money. Johnny he's too proud and so this little girl is running wild like an Urchin around a mining camp and getting no real parental supervision or control. There is one person. One person who james shares the digging with now on the very day that the ways dies they they hear something they hear that there's a new diamond strike out to be is to be as farm and saw the partner takes off and then says I'll meet you there but of course James couldn't come immediately. He had to deal with Louise's this is death but this partner just was such a magnificent man. Yeah he's a great character. I was I was not sure where the story story was going when I first started to get well. Go Out to Africa and start researching The Kimberly area in South Africa I needed needed my main characters. I already had Louisa and Jones in my mind. I thought I was writing about them. But then I realized I was actually writing about Clementine and that change my focus and I thought he's looking out for Clementine and then this character walked into my pages and he's Zulu warrior and he's there on behalf of his tribe and this was very normal in that time lots of the Tribal men left their tribes to go and try and find diamonds and turn that into money for the tribes so it wasn't An unusual sight and he sort of befriends or Jones Burns him mm-hmm and together they sort of work alongside each other but then they decide to make a claim together and peg out a claim and and dig together and it is this man who is called Joseph One shoe and the moment that home was coined. I knew I had a very special character on my hands and I knew that this story story was not going to be a traditional love story. I knew it was going to be a story about an unbreakable bond between two unlikely people. A A little girl who is needs help needs love needs. Affection Needs Supervision and Guidance and this wise beautiful brilliant African so we also see the James. The father is suffering so badly from depression. Then he's drinking and it's a Clementine on is relying on Joseph and he tells her all about the stars and then there's a strike in their own diggings and that find a diamond. They found a lot of diamonds. But this special diamond is given an an astrological name. Yeah because it's meaningful to Joseph and too well to all of them they we all know a bit about the night sky and Joseph brings the sort of Zulu names to the night sky and how his tribe regards those Fabulous heavenly bodies and James can tell him a little bit about How the how the British view the night sky and the and the Western way in how how we've named these stars And that's quite a lovely aspect of the whole story actually that that's another Sort of link can the chain of their bond is that they bond over these stars and Sirius in particular. which is the the the brightest star in the sky?

"cape town" Discussed on Miles Away
"<music> welcome back to miles away. This is your host zack owning today on miles away. We have a very special guest. Ken gibson is a weekend anchor at m._s._n._b._c. miss n._b._c. Welcome to the podcast. It's great to be here in kennison. I've we've got a few work-related trips together most recently singapore. Yes and i think roofing back on that singapore trip. There's one moment that i think i'll never forget and that was our dinner in the dark yeah. It was the first time that you and i've ever had dinner together now. The last time i think it was the last ask time who was absolutely memorable anyway moving on from our dinner on the dark to a destination. I've wanted to visit for for as long as i can remember at least a decade capetown south africa. I booked trip finally in december because united is launching nonstop service from newark to capetown yet so three days a week seasonal service starting december fifteenth eighteenth. I'm going on the inaugural flight fantastic roy see you there. I'm hoping so i saw when that you posted that were heading there and i was so incredibly jealous. L. is and immediately when i saw that united was launching this flight like why have another airlines done this before because obviously can fly straight to joe bird but capetown hasn't been available and it's just the perfect perfect flight. I think it'll be long sixteen hours or so but i i was actually expecting them to announce. Johannesburg berg because south african flies not stop from j._f._k. And dulles with a stop off joe burke <hes> and i was really excited. There's capetown so we'll we'll dig into cape town. Quite you bet fries any market. You'll you'll love it especially in december which was the summer of course so service starts in december. It runs through march that summer down there. It's winter here kind of the best time to make an escape it it is. It's probably also very expensive flight. Even if you're not using points just period yeah i haven't looked yet. Oh i've looked role digging towards the podcast but i wanna start with a quick recap of the cultural and political history of cape town i guess and south africa in general i mean if you can kinda philipson on just the last <hes> couple decades that just the last couple of decades really elevator pitch has happened in the last couple of decades in south africa. I'll tell you what in this country <hes>. I've been there now some three times. The last time was in september and on the first visit there. I realized that they have come further along or so. It seemed culturally truly and with race relations than we have in our fifty plus years since we had the civil rights act and integration they are reconciliation <music> after nelson mandela came out of prison back in early in one thousand nine hundred says just been absolutely amazing and you look at the south african flag and it is an indication of blending of all the cultures and the people that are there and that's what they tried to do. You would think if there would be this sort of racist overtone when you get there. I didn't get that sense sense at all. I'm sure it's there of course it has to be there but not as much as i would feel in other parts of this country still to this day. Did you have a chance to chat with any of the locals. When you're there yeah i did a lot so so the second time i went to south africa. We actually wanted to drive around the country. We drove from johannesburg to kruger national park which is about a six hour drive and then we drove from kruger to to durban so that was fourteen hours in that dr kept noticing like all these people who were hitchhiking are like now no thanks for not picking up anybody nobody but then we started like all right you know what kids in uniforms will pick up the kids in uniforms and then they'd get in the car and that's how they'd get to school or get back home home and so we started talking to them and they would tell us some things about where we are and we drop them off and then we said all right we'll start picking up some women because we felt as if we're safer and same thing we'd be taking them to their grocery store or taking them back home and share some of the culture and then we just branched out and it was a packed car. The men women kids go into the grocery. Store is going home from work going to school going back home from school so you really got a sense of the culture and the history by talking to some of those folks a lot of them also then speak english so that was interesting is hitchhiking legal there. It's it's completely illegal. It's completely legal and it became just something that helped pass the time on a twelve hour trip with one of the person so you quite a bit of south africa yeah on your last trip. How many days did you spend their take time. I spent five days the last time and i've bounced around. I've done durban krueger odyssey and johannesburg and i have some friends in pretoria. That's spent a lot of time in the country. I like to drive around the country a garden route which is absolutely beautiful in the in the southeast and just the history colonialist history of his staggering and amazing at how it's come back from that i mean it's just it's it seems like a stunning country. I've looked at so many pictures over the years and especially cape town johannesburg seems i mean it it. It can be little rough around the edges and i think it has referenda andrews. It's gotten sort of like <hes> tried to be this hit art jazz sort of center and and they have some good bars in good restaurants but it just doesn't have the feel that cape town has it has more sold than capetown without a doubt but capetown's just this natural beauty. Would you say that you're you know you'd be doing yourself a disservice by focusing on cape town exclusively or would it makes sense for you know first trip. I trip focus on cape town. There's so much to do every every single day that you're there is a different experience so i definitely focus on cape town. If you're going to do more than one city in south africa i'd say or one experience into africa. I'd say do capetown and then do one of the national parks go to krueger or go to safari just to mix it up. I wouldn't necessarily say do durban while it's very nice and fun you. You've been to san diego. You've been durban san diego san diego beautiful destination on. I usually like to start with kind of breakdown of the neighborhoods especially focused on the city. I mean capetown's the city. It's not a huge city right. I mean it's pretty remarkable accessible and at least that's my perspective. It's fairly spread it out. There's a very core downtown area and the hotel. I've stayed every time is right there in the downtown area but it's pretty spread out there are different neighborhoods that are very popular camps bay waterfront. There's so many different options as to what sort of experience you'd want when it comes to the neighborhood so i wouldn't necessarily say that it's a walkable city sure you could walk a few blocks downtown. I've tried running from downtown to the waterfront and i'm a runner like you are. I'm a cyclist. I guys all right. Uh <music> offer fast. I walked quickly. Sometimes so it's a long trek to the waterfront you have to pick your neighborhood and realize that all right on any given day you'll will be going to a different neighborhood to experience something different. What's your what's your favorite goto neighborhood. I staying for your hotel and going out. Can you just kind of walk us through. Maybe a couple of the key neighborhoods that someone might wanna focus on for first trip. Okay so for me personally. I like to stay downtown. The waters obviously not downtown. I i just like to be able to walk to some of the clubs that are there on long street. The hotel that i say is todd capetown hotel and i don't know if you can get an unpleasant. I have never gotten it on point but south africa went through there. It's really cheap on on the run versus. The dollar is incredibly awesome right now. I was just looking at the prices for the hotel that i stay at normally. It's only one hundred seventeen dollars. Oh wow i'll tell you something else exactly. It's a todd show. Tell along the likes of like the taj beer you know the same same company. It's an converted bank building and has the vault in the basement meant there some coffee shops and bars there that there used to be. It's across the street from the church. Were <hes> desmond. Tutu was the priest for so many years and it's like two blocks long street and the most awesome awesome south african clubs are right there within walking distance and it's where locals kind of go to or so it feels. It seemed like that mind you. The streets are fairly dark at night. I don't consider it to be dangerous but i wouldn't necessarily walk. Those streets by myself at night is there petty. Crime is like pick packing issue potentially or is just going to be aware of your surroundings. Supposedly petty crime is an issue. I've never had an issue with it but i think just be aware of your surroundings and don't be stupid. Should i expect an active vacation. I mean both of us are obviously you. You're a runner. You're very active. If i want to get the most out of capetown i'm i'm. I'm gonna need to walk around. Do some hiking you know what would you recommend. You'll do some lifting because you'll go to wine country and lift a lot of wine glasses but also like my favorite thing is to it and it's very very touristy and very cliche but it is to hike table mountain. It's such a massive mountain as you know. It's about thirty five hundred feet. They say it's like a two hour hike. I did it in about an hour and a half because i'm one of those people who just wants to get the pain over with and just feel like all right. I'm getting this done and i also foolishly hiked two times without bringing water forgetting okay. Let's bring water. Bring water but it's a cool cool experience. I'd like to go there early in the morning trying to do breakfast on top of table mountain and then just kind of look at the view and it has of course unobstructed three hundred sixty views of south african you can see robben island where nelson mandela was for so many years from up there as well then you take the cable car down. What's what's the climate like in cape town on. I mean is it seasonal seasonal there. It doesn't get really really cold my birthday in september so i've always gone for my birthday usually the temperature during the seventies so while they have some. I'm great beach areas. I can't go into the ocean at that point. You just gotta go to those beach. Towns and kinda just hang out and and have some drinks outside still t-shirt weather but you're not necessarily surly going to dip into the indian ocean. It makes sense yeah. What are some of the other must do's and cape town. Well obviously definitely have to hit up wine country which is about forty forty five minutes away from downtown. Capetown saw those famous south african wines just from that area dellenbaugh area. Most of them are so we did a t. b._g. Trip i didn't get to go on and unfortunately really bad number of my colleagues went and they sent home several cases of wine very reason i mean absolutely i did the same thing like less than one hundred bucks case yeah independent. I mean if you have elite status or if you're flying business or first class you can. You don't have to pay to check it on the flight home. That actually counts as as your luggage in some cases. I would not know that i the strategy. I have to say that's that's actually genius. Make up for some of that so i i actually solicited reader questions on instagram and someone asked about safaris that you can do a dietrich safari. Is that a possibility from cape town or is that separate trip. That's a that's a tough tough trick from cape town. There are some safaris in the south but it's probably more than a day trip as far in itself is a day trip <hes> a good so getting to the location would take a little bit of a trick. If you wanna go shark archiving there is that within an hour away so when it asks about shark diving to it wasn't even really on my radar but what did you do it. No not man yeah we don't do that. We don't do shark diving. Put it on my list. Do the but it's it looks really cool. It looks adventurous and they do it every day..

"In cape town water levels were frighteningly low city authorities find citizens using too much water and blamed climate change for the water shortage but professor mike moolah from wits university says this is not fair according to miller the hydrology models all predicted what was coming and it was poor planning on the part of city authorities there was to blame for the water shortage climate change or not says miller the crisis could have been averted if scientists warnings had been heated our reporter loaner stewart gave him a call at his johannesburg office remodels had certainly fit the tape on that by twenty fifteen they really should have increased the water supply capacity because they were reaching the limits of what could reliably be supplied so the hydrology and the modeling did waiver red flag but for a variety of reasons the the officials concerned sided i i would say to take a risk and it's always pretty risky to gamble against nature nature's gonna very perverse sense of humor what would you expect them to be doing to increase supply it sounds like if the rains don't come the rains don't come some water supply problems in the city are inevitable if there's no rain well speaking as a practitioner what we do in the case with is variable rainfall and we're not sure for instance how we're going to supply during the dry season we will build a dan we will build storage and we'll make sure there's enough watering storage to see us through the dry period so a lot of this is about estimating how long dry period will lost and making sure that there is an ability to supply during that period it's a difficult balance isn't it because this is a drought so severe that it would usually be unexpected while i've seen several different numbers but certainly a very unusual event do you really think the government should be expected to fund large expensive infrastructure projects for something which might not happen i think you know that's that's precisely the argument that the cape town city council used they've now been able to see what happens when you take that kind of risk the model seems to have done then a good job of predicting what was to come to pass but as the climate becomes more erratic and unpredictable how well our existing models to work there you know i mean this is an it's an interesting technical problem which is about how do you capture non stationary i e changing conditions in model which use use with fixed data.
