    ... you waiting for. The bucket list checks.

    The way I was enrolled in this internship was via a mediate agency Go Placement. They arranged the internship and every now and then they organise little trips. I went along one of these trips and we went to a shooting range in Somerset West for some practice shots. Never have I seen or touched a real gun, it was an adrenaline rush shooting those 17 bullets and missing every single target I was aiming ...

    Speed Thrills but it also kills

    ... check cameras in place - I am never sure if these are working judging by the number of people who drove past us at over 120 Kms and hour.
    The best part of driving over the past two days has simply been the absence of cars and trucks on the road. On January 1st we drove from Colesberg to Cape Town and for the first 750kms in was sheer bliss - the was so little traffic in was almost unreal.
    Arriving on the outskirts of Cape Town was almost a return to normality! ...

Then lastly the Slave house where outside there are cubes with the names engraved of the slaves. They were often given a new name from where they came from or the month they ...

    ... the top. It's all upwards so the only parts that feel as though they're a rest for your legs and butt is when it's only on a slight incline.

    It was a tough hike because it was all climb but the views over the sea and mountains were beautiful and it kept me going for sure, and according to the fitness fanatics I hike a lot stronger than I do cycle! No moaning....! I also kept telling myself compared the the 4 day Inca Trail hike this was nothing and I should get on with ...

    ... bus service! Although this is all quite daunting, the fact that the amazing Lapids are only 15 minutes away makes the whole thing SO much less scary. I will hopefully meet up with Mika some time during the week, and perhaps go up for a good meal(!) at the weekend. Bye for now X PS laptop decided it doesn't want to work (more yellow triangle for those who know what I mean), so no pictures for the time being. ...
