      ... we were able to get to the top. It was a bit cold - the thermometer at the top was showing 40 degrees.

      We then proceeded on a city tour that included a noon stop on Signal Hill and a walk through Bo-Kaap, an area known for its brightly painted homes and cobble-stoned streets. It was formerly the Malay Quarter, made up of Muslims from Malaysia.

      ... little creature called a 'rock hyrax', a sort of large squirrel without the tail. We saw three of them and they appeared quite tame. It was time to descend and we joined a queue for the cable car, took about twenty minutes this time, and then descended to the bottom. The whole experience was wonderful.

      ... each day. We all changed into our bathing suits and lay by the pool until our wine tasting. We got to sample 7 different wines. 2 white, 2 red, 1 rose, 1 sparkling wine and a vermouth.
