The most southerly blog post in Africa

There are nearly a billion people in Africa.
Maybe a hundred thousand of them write blogs. About 6 of those blogs are any good.
And lucky you – you’re reading one of them.
Might I suggest a quick dip on the lottery this evening? You are obviously on a roll.

Anyway – why all these exciting stats? Well, because of those billion people on mainland Africa, I am currently the furthest south, as I am writing this post from Cape Agulhas. Not from the village of L’Agulhas – the most southerly village in Africa. Nor from the Cape Agulhas lighthouse – the most southerly lighthouse in Africa. Not even from the little Cape Agulhas monument – the most southerly monument marking the most southerly point in Africa – in Africa. I’ve wandered onto the rocks behind there to bring you what must be the most southerly blog post in Africa. And it’s low tide. Believe me, this is going to be pretty tough for anyone to beat without some sort of major engineering project.

North of me, a billion impoverished individuals with a big desert at the top. South of me, ocean. Plenty of it.

Anyway – I’ve said my piece, I’m off for a(nother) beer.
