African penguins are small creatures, about 18" tall. As I was approaching the beach where they were lying 'sun bathing' there was a sudden uproar among tourists - a seal had caught a tiny penguin and had him for his 'breakfast'. I missed watching it; I was quite a few feet away from the scene of action, but watching it would not have given me any great pleasure.

They say that for every bar of gold produced one person has lost his life!
