... of Robben Island. The visit actually begins at the V&A Waterfront at the Mandela Gateway where we board the ferry where there is a museum and multimedia exhibition. The ferry ride itself takes about 20-30 mins depending on weather. The island is now a UNESCO world heritage site, a symbol of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity, suffering and injustice.

We disembarked at Murray’s Bay Harbour situated on the east coast of the Island and walked ...

... the mountain, Randy and I had a beer. It was a nice time and out of the very, very strong wind. We thought Joan was going to lose her dress. There are more sightings here of the Flying Dutchman than anywhere else in the world. On the way back to Cape Town, we saw baby and mama ostriches, mountain zebras, and other animals and birds. My last fix of African animals..... Until I can come back. After we got back to the hotel, Jim surprised several ...

We then go on to see the limestone quarry where they had to crush the stone for local roads etc. and a tour of the island which has a history of incarceration and quarantine, including as a Lepers' colony. We return via a rock and roll trip across the bay in heavy swells. We stay in the V & ...

... a shark would essentially always brush up against the cage. Don't know what else to say besides look at the pictures, and definitely do it if you're ever in Cape Town. Day 3 in Cape Town I just relaxed and went shopping because I had nothing to go out in. I had all hiking clothing which is great for hiking not so much for clubbing. We went to another of those amazing markets to start the night, went back to the hostel to change and drink some more before heading out to Long ...
