      ... run 2 laps around the field with no cutting in front of the football goal posts. We form another circle to do stretches and then sing a few songs including the banana song, the porridge song, and the button factory song. The kids then get in 4 lines and do relay races down the field, e.g. run down, hop back, run backwards down, leap frog back.

The end of the tour was at the small cell of Nelson Mandela where he was imprisoned and slept on the floor for 18 years out of 27.

Surprisingly, Paddy was way more type A and opinionated than I was, wanted to do similar activities, and Stan didn't seem to mind. I instantly felt better about the ...

      ... place called Rainbow's End. It's a relatively small family-owned vineyard. Here, too, we saw the vintner and a group of workers in the midst of harvest and processing. Our tasting was on the back porch of the family patriarch's home, which was well over a 100 years old and overlooked the end of a valley. Clouds and rained rolled in for the first time of our trip, but it was still warm and ...

      ... in the Flag of Cape Town and other local government insignia. It is a significant tourist attraction, with many visitors using the cableway or hiking to the top. The mountain forms part of the Table Mountain National Park. The view from the top of Table Mountain has been described as one of the most epic views in Africa."
