... The markets in Cape Town have heaps and heaps more souvenirs and cool things so I think I'll wait till then to buy presents and stuff for myself.

The views were amazing - the mountain is about 3000 meters high And looks over all of Cape Town below to the right, and then out over the ocean and Camps Bay. We found our abseiling crew, and they strapped us in harnesses and gave us a run through of how to repel. Words are not enough to describe what it feels ...
