Escaped the danger at the Cape

stats of the week: run 10km, cycled 52km

Our last week in SA was more of walking than running, the knee was not excited. However, we are safely back home. Astonishingly the most dangerous situation was the face to face encounter with an almost 2-meter-long snake in Cape Point National Park. It turned out to be a Cape Cobra, one of the moist poisonous snakes of Africa. The dose rate of one of its bites is enough to kill 6 humans. The snake was less than 2 meters in front of me on the footpath. Anyway, C insists the traffic was more dangerous. Nevertheless we already booked for next year.
