I went to drop off somebody at Cape Town airport yesterday afternoon. She was suppose to fly at 3pm but eventually was allowed into the secure area around 7pm. Luckily we got into the Spur early to get a table and there we spend the afternoon drinking some wine and met a lot of strangers :).
It is amazing what chaos one plane can do when it gets stuck on the runway. Although one could barely move, the people was very well behaved.
R (the person I went to drop off) eventually arrived at her destination in Johannesburg just before midnight – about 6 hours after her planned arrival.
