      As an HI employee, I always am excited to stay in other Hostelling International hostels. And thankfully, 33 South did not disappoint. The staff were extremely friendly, the vibe was hip and local, and everything was a great value. I definitely met a number of people and could not have been more happy with the experience.

      ... funky vibes and a good strip of restaurants. At a little tapas restaurant (PS- South African restaurants don't exist in Sth Africa) we made friends with 3 young South Africans from Jo'Berg- a husband, wife and her best friend, of whom who had travelled around the world together. Instantly we had a lot in common and they were running fanatics who had just done Two Oceans as part of their training for Comrades....a match made in heaven! Was good to share ...

      City centre

      Got up and walked into the city centre, having a look round the Bo-Kaap area with all the cute colourful houses on the way. As it was Sunday a lot of places were closed, but we found somewhere for a cheap and tasty burger, whilst watching a mum let her toddler crawl up the stairs 4 times - obviously just learnt. Checked out train journeys for later in the week, and then found an Eastern food market ...

      ... have all the accounting firms here and if they won't let me live here than maybe BP or Chevron will. I left this/yesterday morning out of Cape Town for Singapore and couldn't sleep at all. My body is essentially all jacked up here in Singapore but the adventure here starts tomorrow bright and early. ***PHOTOS*** https://picasaweb.google.com/1166713022 03312153661/CapeTown?authuser=0&authkey =Gv1sRgCK--zaL7s97eYg&feat=directlink Click that button in the upper right hand corner and donate?

      ... Apparently I had a bad reaction to the malaria pills I had been taking, which I didn't need. There is no concern for HIPPA violations because the receptionist explained everyone who had been through. My nurse didn't use gloves for the butterfly either. It's simple things that make you appreciate how our health care works. It was definitely an interesting experience that made me realize how blessed we are to have to top care in the nation. What a ...

      ... we could have done it in 4 easily without Ze Germans). Every second was worth it though for even just a glimpse of the view at the top. When we got there we all literally stood in silence for 20 mins in awe. Unbelievable. Unreal. It is hard to explain, even the pictures don't do it justice! Sat on the edge of a rock, feet dangling 1090 meters high! Although everytime I went near the edge I went dizzy and jelly legged! Who knew I had Vertigo! Nearly passed out watching ...
